The Hague Student Investment Fund
In the autumn of 2020, an enthusiastic group of students started researching the feasibility of a student investment fund at The Hague University of Applied Sciences: The Hague Student Investment Fund. They want to use the fund to invest in start-ups and scale-ups of students and alumni from The Hague University of Applied Sciences. The fund can be a hub in a network of entrepreneurs, students, the Hague region, alumni, financiers and lecturers.
The Integrated Reporting project of the New Finance research group within the Digital Operations & Finance Centre of Expertise involves the PhD research of Egbert Willekes. In this project, the lecturer-researcher examines how companies can respond to economic, ecological and social values, how they can show their impact on business results by using a good management and accounting system and how they can respond to the needs of stakeholders in a more targeted way.
Reshaping Business Education
Experimental research and development project: KOIOS
KOIOS is an experimental research and development project to promote educational innovation and provide education, especially on FinTech technologies, to students and professionals. In addition, the project links education, research and business. The aim of KOIOS is to facilitate and promote lifelong learning, which is available to everyone thanks to the open source concept. The project originated from the blockchain minor and is a joint initiative of the New Finance research group (part of the Centre of Expertise for Digital Operations & Finance) and the Finance & Control degree programme (Faculty of BFM). KOIOS also actively cooperates with the Faculty of IT & Design.
