Like last year, the Honours College and Next organise the Falling Walls Labs. The Lab is a platform for excellent academics, entrepreneurs and professionals from all disciplines who get the opportunity to present their research work, business model, innovative project or idea with peers and a distinguished jury from both academia and business. The winner of the event in Groningen will be given the opportunity to pitch his/her idea on the finale in Berlin. Falling Walls Labs takes place in the 3D theater Infoversum in Groningen on October 16th.
Honours College students organise Falling Walls as part of the Leadership Lab, which is part of the Master programme. A Leadership Lab is a project where you can observe, experience and practice a number of leadership skills.
