Welcome to the Maastricht University Challenge! For the 3rd year the Maastricht University Challenge provides a platform for students and recent graduates of Maastricht University, Zuyd University of Applied Sciences, Fontys and HAS to showcase and develop their innovative ideas, related to societal and entrepreneurial issues. Besides, by taking part in this challenge, students are supported by coaches from the industry in making real progress in realizing a viable business plan.
