Do you have an innovative idea, a question or an unsolved problem that you cannot get to? Working with students of Wageningen University & Research (WUR) could be a solution. Society Based Education connects questions from society to education at WUR. They also do this for the course Academic Consultancy Training (ACT). ACT is a course in which you can work together with students on your consultancy question!
The aim of ACT is to offer teams of students the opportunity to execute an academic consultancy project in collaboration with an external commissioner. The student teams, composed of students with various disciplinary and often cultural backgrounds, work in a trans-disciplinary manner. This means that based on data collection and analysis, the teams merge multiple academic and practical knowledge in order to respond to the consultancy question of the commissioner. Their work ends with an academic consultancy recommendation on future actions for their commissioner.
