Putting People First
At the Centre for Innovation, we focus on people and context. We develop learning experiences, applications, technologies, and methodologies, focused always on understanding, exploring and impacting root issues. Our innovations foster collaboration within Leiden University and between (inter)national academic institutions, societal actors and the private & public sector.
Our work is focused within our four themes: Digital Solutions for Education, Learning Experiences, Lifelong Learning and Data & AI for Social Impact. These themes are areas of research, action, and opportunity. Our focus areas within each theme evolve and change over time as we identify new trends or implement and scale our innovations. Our goal is always to transfer our innovations into education and society.

Digital Education Seminar: Reflections on 2020 and New Perspectives for 2021
2020 has been a challenging and hectic year for all of us. Leiden University made the enormous shift to emergency remote teaching, and then to hybrid education on campus. We've tried out new forms of teaching, learning, collaborating and have been exposed to new tools and ways for working. Overall it has been a big transformation. Join this online seminar to find out how Leiden University approached the challenges of 2020, and what's in store for 2021.
Connect with us! We organise and attend various events that inspire, inform and challenge.
