Joint minors

Joint minors are devised by teachers from the three universities and are open to students at the three universities.  Within social relevant themes students from different disciplines work on cases with problem owners from exhisting companies and organizations. 

Frugal Innovation for Sustainable Global Development

This minor offers in-depth insight into how and under which conditions frugal innovation can contribute to sustainable global development. Students explore the concepts behind frugal innovation: frugal solutions that meet the basic needs of people and so offer them a better existence. Students will go on an internship abroad to bring the acquired knowledge into practice by working in multidisciplinary teams on real life challenges.

Geo-resources for the Future: Social, Economic, Environmental and Political Challenges

This minor teaches students to draw on various disciplines to explore the responsible use and trade of geological resources. We are facing challenges: Increasing CO 2 emissions are causing climate change and call for an energy transition towards renewable energy sources. In addition, the supplies of fossil fuels and minerals are limited and their availability and prices strongly depend on global politics. In this Minor, you will learn about the various disciplines that are involved in a responsible exploitation and trading of geo-resources and practice their integration.
