Hogeschool Utrecht University of Applied Sciences Utrecht (HU) is one of the largest higher education institutes in the Netherlands, and for a fourth year in a row, it has received the gold ‘SustainaBul’ for sustainability from Studenten voor Morgen, a Dutch national network of student organisations.

HU has over 38,000 students with more than a hundred different nationalities represented, yet students still experience HU’s educational environment as small-scale and personalised.

HU Business School is proud to host the EDiNEB conference on its state of the art premises at the Utrecht Science Park. Entre/intrapreneurship and Sustainable Innovation are the spearheads of HU Business School.

Utrecht is located in the heart of the Netherlands and is the country’s fourth largest city (340,000 inhabitants). Utrecht is well-known for its institutions of higher education and as home to some 70,000 students, it is a real student city. Utrecht is at once dazzlingly modern and impressively old. It has the intimacy of a small town, but the amenities and ambitions of a big city.10303-Web formaat 1024 px
