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.
