Learning Communities

Learning, working and innovating together

Innovation is the engine of economic growth, sustainability and progress. In a learning community, companies, educational institutions and knowledge institutions work closely together and learning, working and innovation are optimally connected. Innovations are therefore developed more quickly and also find their way more quickly into the practice of business and education.

What is a Learning community

A Learning Community is a place where optimal cooperation between vocational and higher education, business and research institutions takes shape. And the place where people can develop and innovations are put into practice more quickly. We stimulate learning communities throughout our entire ecosystem.

Ambition top sectors

As top sector, we want to further develop at least 100 public-private partnerships with knowledge and tools about better connecting learning, working and innovation. The ultimate goal is to sustainably strengthen the innovation capacity of our business community.
