Partnership with the region
Fontys provides education and research. As a broad-based university, we are the largest public knowledge institute in the south of the Netherlands. Our goal is to become an innovation engine by linking education and research to innovation processes both inside and outside the region. Fontys makes a considerable impact on every sector of society in the region thanks to the diversity of its education programmes and research. Because of our representation in key positions in these sectors, all those who live and work in the south of the Netherlands are affected by the activities of Fontys, either directly or indirectly.
We educate large groups of talented young adults in many professions. In many cases, after finishing their degree, we are fortunate enough to meet them as colleagues, as internship coaches, as partners in cooperation and/or research, or as professionals who wish to enrich or deepen their knowledge in their own field of interest. We regard ourselves as a knowledge and innovation partner for professionals throughout the surrounding region(s).
