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 & Research, 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.
