About us Profile


The University of Groningen is a internationally oriented university with a rich academic tradition. Since the establishment in 1614, the university has brought forward striving academics, like the first female student, the first Dutch astronaut and various Nobel price winners.

Geographically, the University is rooted in the Northern part of the Netherlands, a region very close to its heart. We verbinden onderwijs en onderzoek met duurzame en economische processen in de maatschappij. Dit komt samen in onze drie speerpunten: Energy, Healthy Ageing en Sustainable Society.
