How strong is your idea power? Are you eager to become a more inventive professional? Would you love to use both your intellect and your imagination for more impactful innovation? Then join us for this one-week celebration of Creative Intelligence! 

The Creative Intelligence summer course is an intensive course in which you learn what Creative Intelligence is and how to apply it. Both as an individual in your personal life and as an (aspiring) entrepreneur in your organisation, for your peers and colleagues, employees and the world in which you live.
 
You’ll discover different ways to access, amplify and cultivate Creative Intelligence. You will be introduced to our unique heuristic for Creative Intelligence, which you can keep on using after the course, in order to support the growth of your creative intelligence. You can also involve others, using this heuristic.
 
The course will hand you methods and tools to apply creative intelligence in your personal and professional life. We combine theory and practice, for hands-on experience. We’ll design our own experiments and carry out in-depth research in a real world setting.
 
It will be an exciting exploration! We’re going on an adventure … 

 
Creatieve intelligentie is the combination of intellect and imagination.

Welcome to Utrecht

Utrecht is the Netherlands' fourth largest and most central city. Utrecht is incomparable to any other place. Where else can you walk straight from the train to the shops, where else can you have a beer or a delicious meal right beside the canal, what other city has such a striking and easily recognisable landmark as the Dom Tower, which is more than 600 years old? A city with a friendly shopping heart, friendly street cafés, as well as a bubbling nightlife; with busy pubs and cafés, simple eateries, but also stylish restaurants and contemporary congress and meeting centres.
