For Students: Academics of the future
The academics of the future are learning to combine disciplinary knowledge and expertise with a broad range of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary knowledge and skills. This enables them to work and communicate with colleagues from other disciplines and with partners outside academia in complex and diverse contexts.
EduXchange. Together, the institutions create innovative educational programmes to engage students and professionals in shaping the future and tackling major societal challenges in the areas of energy, health, circular economy and nutrition. Students of Eindhoven University of Technology, Wageningen University & Research or Utrecht University can use the EduXchange platform to take courses at any of those institutions. The platform removes administrative barriers, so the students themselves can enrol in a straightforward way.
Challenge based learning. The alliance is committed to new forms of education, including Challenge Based Learning. In this context, students from the various institutions and from different disciplines work together on existing social issues.
