Innovation Fellowships

Innovation Fellowships are sponsored by a specific association or organisation seeking to expand knowledge in their field. The Fellows enhance their knowledge and obtain professional experience that enriches their careers and the organisations to which they return.

The Innovation Fellowship programme gives our partners an (international) working space for experimentation and learning. Partner organisations develop novel projects in partnership with Leiden University. Innovation Fellows are trained in new practices such as online learning, agile governance and data science.
