Novel-T SMART accelerates innovations as a connector between organizations and (students of) knowledge institutions from the east of the Netherlands


Novel-T helps new business arise and renew existing companies. Innovative companies own and create the future. But where do you start if you need knowledge, expertise or talent to be able to innovate? Right! At Novel-T SMART. We accelerate innovation by being the connector between organizations and students. Because knowledge institutions such as the University of Twente and Saxion often have the expertise and talent to take the next step towards a future-proof organization. We are happy to help you find the right approach to link students to your challenges.

You can challenge students with your innovation issue in various ways. We help to sharpen the innovation demand of companies and translate it into a suitable study project. This can be done, for example, in the form of an internship, graduation research, part-time job or team assignment such as a creathon.

Novel-T SMART is not only the matchmaker between organizations and students. We also provide practical assignments for training courses, encourage talent retention in the region and contribute to the reputation of SMEs among students. We do this with innovation hubs and the Multiply project, among other things.
