Do you want to contribute to a more sustainable future? Then our bachelor Sustainable Innovation might be something for you.
Innovations from a technical, economic and social perspective
Sustainable Innovation studies innovations from a technical, economic and social perspective, so that society can consume and produce sustainably. When introducing new sustainable technologies into society, for example in the energy supply and the built environment, several actors are always involved: the government, the business community, social groups, knowledge institutions and also the consumer. At Sustainable Innovation, these different actors look at an issue aimed at a sustainable society. Take, for example, the introduction of solar panels: this involves more than just technology. Costs, regulations and acceptance by society also play a role. You will also learn to place recent developments and discussions about sustainability in a long-term perspective and how Dutch developments relate to international developments.
