Are you a Young Innovator?
Utrecht University offers the Young Innovators programme to creative and ambitious students who are keen to put their academic skills to work for the common good. The programme is focused on learning to research, design and deliver innovative and sustainable solutions to real-life societal challenges.
Think outside of your discipline
These multifaceted challenges demand the joint efforts of experts from all sciences. In an multidisciplinary team of students and supported by leading researchers from the university's strategic research themes, you immerse yourself for a whole year in the theory and practice of innovation across the corporate, public and community sectors. The issues transcend national and cultural borders and is therefore taught in English.
