Six promising digital talents, including two UG students, have been nominated for the Noorden Digitaal Talent Award. Noorden Digitaal, a networking organization for digital society, awards this prize to offer students and school pupils from the provinces of Groningen, Friesland and Drenthe a platform to showcase their digital discoveries and solutions.

Their video pitches can be watched on the Noorden Digitaal website.


The Noorden Digitaal Talent Award comprises a prize awarded by an expert jury as well as an audience award for the project that receives the most votes. The audience vote is open on the website until Sunday 7 February.
