Program description

In Sustainable Innovation you study innovations from a technological, economic and societal perspective, to enable society at large to consume and produce in a sustainable way.

Students of the Sustainable Innovation program are trained to use technology to solve societal issues, to strengthen welfare and well-being in the world. The study doesn't just look at the design of an electric car, for example, but at the design in combination with the required infrastructure (charging stations) as well as the development of the market, laws and regulations, and the broader effects on mobility patterns, urban planning and the climate. This kind of design process always involves multiple actors such as government, industry, groups within society, knowledge institutes and consumers.
