Centre for Innovation


We are a university do tank that explores and creates enterprising projects at the juncture of education, technology and society, located in The Hague.

Our mission is to prepare Leiden University for the digital future by identifying and exploring technological trends in education and research. How do we interact with the increasingly digital reality? What does our changing world mean for learning experiences and in the way we organise work? And to take it even further: how do we develop technology driven solutions to world’s most complex challenges like peace, justice, security and prosperity?

We explore technology from a people’s perspective by starting initiatives relevant to society, developing learning experiences and innovation tools. We connect faculty, students, our partners, the market and society at large. Actively merging different visions, methods and experiences we tackle challenges and come up with new solutions.
