Crossing Borders

Short description

In this minor module students learn about sustainable development, social innovation and technology transfer to the global South while developing their research skills. First, around 20% of that time is taken up in preparation at the UT, to formulate a research plan under supervision in groups formed by the teachers to mix students from different courses. Students (individually or in pairs) typically spend 2-4 months working on a knowledge transfer project to the global south
