Minor Future Planet Innovation


Would you like to contribute to a sustainable society? Learn how to evoke change? Are you interested in both the scientific and social aspects of sustainability? With this minor, the future is in your hands. The minor Future Planet Innovation aims to contribute to a sustainable society. By attending this minor, you will learn how to make choices in a rapidly changing world and how to design feasible solutions. The minor is a complete program that perfectly fits in each curriculum. This means that the education is tailor-made for a broad audience. 


Sustainability issues are highly complex and solutions can only thrive with extensive collaboration. In the minor students from all disciplines combine talents and backgrounds in the quest for a sustainable world. You will therefore also learn how to integrate the topic of sustainability within your own disciplinary background.

During the second semester (1B) students work on an actual project in multidisciplinary teams in the course Sustainable Contributions to Society (15 ECTS).
