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.

Current student hub opportunity:

Gemeente Leiden: Er bestaat bij veel mensen het beeld dat het niet mogelijk is om erfgoed te verduurzamen, terwijl dit wel degelijk mogelijk is. Hoe ontstaat dit beeld en wat is er nodig om dit beeld te veranderen? Voor meer informatie over deze mogelijkheid tot onderzoek bij Erfgoed Leiden, neem contact op met R. de Boer.
