Leerdoelen 1. Engage in an innovative off-campus "hands on" research experience in spatial sciences;
2. Apply knowledge and skills, learned in the classroom, to real world problems;
3. Enhance students' understanding of processes, applications and complexities in the spatial sciences in the context of the Northern Netherlands;
4. Collaborate in a(n) (international) team of students from different disciplinary backgrounds within the Spatial Sciences (such as Spatial Planning, Economic Geography, Cultural Geography and Demography);
5. Collaborate with local and regional stakeholders such as governments, firms, and non-governmental organisations, and manage expectations effectively;
6. Present their findings to their peers and stakeholders involved.
Omschrijving In the course Joint Multidisciplinary Research Project, student teams from different disciplinary backgrounds within the Spatial Sciences work together to tackle research problems that have been identified by local and regional stakeholders, such as governments, firms or non-governmental organisations. The teams work on well-defined assignments that challenge students to apply their knowledge and skills in real world settings. The end result of the project is a report, that is presented to the stakeholders at the end of the semester.

Opmerkingen Since student work with local/regional partners, communication in Dutch with the external stakeholder, collecting data in Dutch, and providing a written summary in Dutch will probably be necessary.
