Support our research and contribute to a sustainable future

Progress always begins with the need to investigate and solve problems. At Nyenrode research is often about solving current social issues that we link to our core values; Leadership, Entrepreneurship and Stewardship.

Strengthen the academic foundation

One of our strategic goals is to achieve societal impact and thereby strengthen the academic foundation. We do that with scientific research. Research is essential to tackle the societal challenges we face in the Netherlands.
