Other educational activities at the doctoral programme in development and regeneration

To address growing societal and economic challenges, we believe that the role of the university is not limited to education and research but includes the "third mission". Both researchers and students can act as changemakers, engage with society and link the university’s activities with its socio-economic context to improve health for everybody.


Since 2017, we have organized a number of TEDx inspired DEVREG Salons, forums for transferrable skills and important topics that are normally not covered by the curriculum. Learning for life, learning for change, learning for better world!
