Learning and innovation

Research and education at UM is thematic, multidisciplinary, and inspired by social themes. UM distinguishes itself by focusing on three main research themes (i.e. ‘Quality of life’, ‘Europe and a Globalising World’, and ‘Learning and innovation’) which are studied on the basis of different disciplines at all relevant levels. Maastricht is known for its innovative approach to education and for its university wide choice for problem based learning. A defining characteristic of our research in this domain is the strong link between educational research and educational practice. At a micro-level research varies from the exploration of neurological foundations of learning to research in (new) educational formats to enhance individual learning. Meso- and macro-level research include the evaluation of educational interventions both at school and at systems level, as well as corporate and organisational learning and social innovation. A major segment of this research strategy explores the social, political and economic factors that drive technological innovation.
