Educational innovation is high on our agenda. Take, for example, our InnovationHub: a dynamic environment in which students, teachers, researchers and work field partners work together on 'real' issues. Every student who participates contributes something from his own background. In these multidisciplinary teams, students are given the freedom to follow their own path. There are three hybrid learning environments within the FBC InnovationHub: Circular Transition, Digital Transformation and Resilient Cities. Each hybrid learning environment focuses on one particular research theme.
