Academics for Development

Academics for Development is a non-profit organization founded on social entrepreneurship. Through projects and on-campus events, we strive to give students the opportunity to enrich themselves and have durable social impact.

Our Projects

We organize social impact oriented student consulting projects around the world in which a multidisciplinary team of students collaborates with a social enterprise, start-up or NGO, during the academic year. The team then joins the project partner on location for an implementation phase of 6-8 weeks.

Our Events

AFD organises events to bring topics related to social entrepreneurship and impact closer to the broader student community and public. Furthermore, AFD endeavours to be a platform for young individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit and a heart for driving social change.
