Other activities

This is a cooperation between the institutes of higher education in the region (Maastricht University, Zuyd Hogeschool, Fontys Hogescholen and Open University), the vocational education institutes (MBO), schoolboards in primary and secondary education, and the Province of Limburg. Main goal of this project is maintaining and expanding good education in the region. Education in which students learn things that fit their talents and interests, and which matches the needs of future education, or the labour market. We believe that by collaboration between all relevant actors, and active monitoring of progress, this can be achieved.

Within this research theme we focus on innovative research, where collaboration between various disciplines (in and outside the SBE) and with important societal organisations (e.g. schools and ministries) and companies is crucial. Visit the posters of researchers within this theme here.

Human Capital – the talents, knowledge and skills of the population – is the driving force of the economy. Optimal development and use of people’s human capital is necessary for firms and society to be competitive, productive and innovative. However, many different trade-offs exists and choices have to be made. The analysis of this is at the core of the specialisation of Education and Labour Economics. The program is developed in close cooperation with firms, educational practitioners and education policy-makers. You will learn to analyse questions with respect to education and labour economics both from a theoretical and empirical perspective. You will analyse practical problems, through accessing unique and comprehensive data on initial education and adult learning.
