Programme of Science, Management and Innovation
Master’s specialisation in Science in Society
The master specialisation Science, Management and Innovation consists of two years.
Formally, during the first year of your master, you will follow the courses and activities belonging to the master Biology.
In your second year you start with the courses and activities attributed to the SMI. These courses you will follow with students from the entire faculty who are enrolled in this specialisation.
