The University of Groningen (1614) is hosting a range of summer schools in Groningen and elsewhere in the world. Summer schools are a wonderful way to bring bright students and inspired researchers together to work intensively on important topics. Our summer schools are always research-driven, and many of them are multidisciplinary, offering
a wide range of perspectives. Some of them will especially highlight the University’s priority research themes: Sustainable Energy, Healthy Ageing and Sustainable Society.
Our academics will open up their networks for you and bring in international counterparts and external stakeholders. We invite you to bring in your knowledge and ambitions, and to share your experiences and questions.
