‘Our range of disciplines allows us to help find answers to a broad spectrum of issues facing society’
Meaningful teaching and research
The teaching and research at Radboud University are meaningful, not just for our own students and staff but also for the world around us. We are working on a healthy, free world with equal opportunities for all. Together with our social partners and other knowledge institutions, we are committed to tackling the challenges facing our society. We look for answers, solutions and the added value to society that our teaching and research bring. Our range of disciplines allows us to help find answers to a broad spectrum of issues facing society, ranging from health, climate, well-being and arts & culture to safety and the way society is organised. Our teaching and research are meaningful, both internationally and for our immediate environment.
At the heart of society. We show what we have to offer.
Together with our partners – including the Universities of the Netherlands (UNL) and The Guild, a network of European universities – we are committed to collaboration at the national, European and international levels. Radboud University enters into international and regional strategic alliances, based on our view that cooperation should be a structural and valuable investment. Our partnerships are characterised by quality and reciprocity, with ethical considerations playing a role in our choice of partnerships.
Enterprising in the wider region
As a university, we are positioned at the heart of society. Our immediate environment – city, province and border region – is home to many companies, educational institutions and other institutions and organisations with whom we enter into or build on meaningful relationships. It is at this interface between government, industry, civil society and other knowledge and educational institutions that collaboration generates perfect opportunities. We actively seek out questions from our environment to which we as a university can respond.
