Society/Business

Researchers of the University of Groningen contribute to solving social issues through contract research commissioned by the business world or social organizations. Society thus benefits directly from the RUG’s innovative knowledge.  

At the same time, science also benefits from this interaction. Questions from the business world often inspire researchers to change their approach. This also gives the University’s own research a new impulse.

Our scientists devote quality, inventiveness and passion to research into current social issues such as healthy ageing, energy and sustainable society. As a result, economically successful forms of public-private enterprises came into being.

Energy Academy Europe to provide education in Mozambique
Energy Academy Europe to provide education in Mozambique

Mozambique has gas fields off its coast, as well as huge potential for sustainable energy resources such as biomass, solar and wind power. However, it does not have sufficient expertise to develop these promising energy resources. In the next four years, the University of Groningen and the Energy Academy Europe, along with other parties, will help strengthen Mozambique’s knowledge infrastructure in the field of energy by setting up degree programmes at Mozambican knowledge institutes and by training staff.
