"I made really big changes personally, but also in the case of circularity." - LCT Student 2022

Talent programme Leadership for the Circular Transition

Are you excited or curious about the transition to a circular world, and do you want to know how you can make an impact within this transition? Then the national talent programme Leadership for the Circular Transition is just for you! 

The programme

In the national Talentprogramme Leadership for the Circular Transition (LCT) students work together with fellow students and experts from the field of circular transitions from across the Netherlands for about four months. You develop the competencies and skills you need to play your part in the transition towards a circular world.

The programme is practice orientated and consists of different modules in which you will learn about circular transition, business models, climate justice and how value can be added in different ways. Next to that you will work in your own institution, minor or circular living lab where you will be able to bring the skills you develop directly to action.


The programme is open for all curious (mbo-hbo-wo) students that want to challenge themselves next to their regular study program. The LCT is most suitable for students in their third year or beyond.

Of course, we are happy to welcome ambitious students who want to join the programme even though they are not yet this far into their studies.

The programme is in English.
