About 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.

In the video below, Bas van den Berg gives an insight in the programme by looking back on the 2021-edition. Note: the video is in Dutch. 

The LCT-programme is practice-orientated and consists of three 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 in English.

For whom?

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.
