What is it all about?

The strategic programme sets out UM's ambitions and overall vision for a five-year period. It describes how we will fulfil our ambition to be and to remain the European university of the Netherlands. It covers which Sustainable Development Goals have our special attention, how we want to further enrich our highly-regarded Problem-Based Learning with technology, as well as why we are adding a fourth theme to our research profile—Sustainability & Circularity. We also discuss how we link our interdisciplinary research to issues that affect society, in Europe and around the world.
