Leiden University wants its research and teaching to have a positive impact on society. In an effort to achieve this, many of our researchers collaborate with academic and community partners, non-governmental organisations and the business sector.
The University encourages openness to others within and outside the University and a climate of open innovation.
More than ever, knowledge sharing and collaboration are keywords in academia. The university of the future will largely be a network university because universities can only achieve their ambitions through cooperation with others.
