Advident sustainability challenge

The Advident Sustainability Challenge is a 10-week long challenge for bachelor students where you will be working in groups of 6 students to solve a case from a company. The challenge will take place the first or second semester of the study year 2022. In this challenge you will receive help and lectures from us and other companies. The theme “sustainability” is the fundament of this challenge and at the end of the process your group will present your idea in front of a jury and the best idea will win the Advident sustainability challenge!

What does it mean?

In this challenge, participants will be introduced to natural science consultancy based on sustainability and will learn what it is like to work for a real company. Which company this is, is yet to be announced. Other companies that play a role in consultancy will also give a lecture or workshop to introduce you to all the ins and outs of natural science consultancy. If you successfully complete the challenge you will also be eligible for the Advident challenge certificate.

What can we do for you?

As a currently active partner in multiple courses within the faculty beta-sciences, we provide relevant cases from companies, NGO’s and other organizations for students to work on. Real-time cases help students connect their academic knowledge to what is happening (commercially, legislatively and policy-wise) in their field of expertise and enhance students’ motivation. By finding cases that fit perfectly within the give course, students tend to be more involved, gain knowledge much quicker and in the meantime professionalize themselves in their field of expertise. For every UU-course, we personally take care of the acquisition of relevant cases from organizations within (or outside of) our network and maintain contact with the client. Are you also interested in implementing this working method in your course? Please reach out to us!


We would be happy to welcome you to our office (H.R. Kruytgebouw Z7.04, Utrecht Science Park) or meet in an online environment for an introductory meeting. If you would like to meet at a different location or rather contact us via phone, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. You can reach us at or call to +31 637179803 (Bas van der Meer).

Na jaren met Advident samen te werken blijven ze me nog steeds verbazen met nieuwe interessante casussen en bedrijven!

Past year I collected my own cases, the work Advident did not only spared me a lot of time but it was also very professional.
