Academic Consultancy Training

Innovative ideas do not always lead to completely developed projects, due to lack of time and / or creative energy. The students of Wageningen University & Research may offer a solution to this problem.

Companies, governmental bodies and education- and research institutions can submit real-life projects to the Education Project Services to work on them with students.

Academic Consultancy Training (ACT) is an example of a course in which students can get started with your project. The Education Project Services is constantly searching for projects that students can work on in this course. These are problem-orientated, interdisciplinary assignments in which a multidisciplinary group of approximately six students can use their creativity to find a solution. Does collaborating with students appeal to you? Would you like well-educated students to work on one of your projects? Then please read further or contact the Education Project Services via the contact form.
