Meaningful research for society
Knowledge and innovation hubs
The hubs form the core of our organisation. In the hubs, we offer thesis topics and internships to master students. Each hub has its own scope and approach to the circular economy and sustainable urban development. The research topics are directly connected to external stakeholders such as companies and municipalities. Our hubs aim to:
- Formulate demand driven research topics together with external stakeholders
- Allow students to conduct research with impact (master thesis/internship)
Develop interdisciplinary research, by connecting students and researchers from three universities.
DORP is the interdisciplinary innovation lab ten days prior to the festival Welcome to The Village. In a limited time frame, we build and test innovations in a festival infrastructure that involve energy, water and whatever you come up with, that can catapult us towards a sustainable future. Students from Leiden, Delft and Erasmus work in interdisciplinary teams together with entrepreneurs, artists and students from other universities.
