Workshops & masterclasses

Workshops are organized on innovation processes (e.g. SCRUM, Design Thinking, LEAN, etc.), teamwork, group dynamics, and innovator- and leadership. Through extra activities the students will develop the skills needed to successfully accomplish the challenge. For the masterclasses the students and staff will invite inspiring speakers from societal, public, academic, political, and business perspectives. During this program you will be stimulated to collaborate, produce and learn in multidisciplinary teams. In this, you are challenged to take ownership of both your own and collective learning processes and thereby invited to co-create the program design.
