Student hubs

'Student hubs' are short term interships that connect Master and advanced BA students from Leiden, Delft and Erasmus to questions and needs from societal partners.  These questions and issues are translated into concrete topics coupled with a tailored supervision from both the partner organization and our academic network. For students this is a way to gain experience, to build their cv and network and maybe to find a topic for their thesis.  For organizations this is a way to have a fresh look at things for low costs; our students are ambitious, intelligent and think out-of-the-box.
