The 2022 National Think Tank is looking for ambitious thinkers and doers

14 March 2022

Do you want to have an impact on society? If so, the 2022 National Think Tank is looking for you.

What is the National Think Tank?

As part of the National Think Tank you and a diverse group of ambitious thinkers and doers will spend four months researching a current societal theme and work on solutions that will have an important impact. And the goal of the exercise? To help Dutch society get ahead with smart and creative initiatives.

Biodiversity in the Netherlands

The theme for this year is biodiversity in the Netherlands. It’s an issue on which the Netherlands is in many respects lagging behind the rest of Europe: over the past 30 years, for example, no fewer than 75 per cent of our insects have disappeared.


The 2022 National Think Tank is taking place from 15 August to 16 December 2022. Are you a final year bachelor’s student, a master’s student, a recent graduate or a PhD candidate? If so, sign up. Registration opened on 10 March and closes on 10 April 2022. Online information evenings will be held on 15 March, 23 March and 4 April.
