The ssu foundation
The SSU Foundation organises a unique extra-curricular programme for excellent innovation students in Utrecht. The goal of the SSU is to apply acquired knowledge to practice by the two parts of the programme. For one part, the participants work on a case study whereby a posed problem or question of a company is being addressed. The SSU has been collaborating with innovative Dutch companies and institutions such as Philips and the government for 20 years. The other part of the programme consists of a study tour abroad where the participants experience innovation in a cultural context by visiting companies and institutions at location.
