SMO is a foundation that accelerates the realization of societal ambitions. To achieve this we signal and identify societal challenges for which an integrative approach and adaptability from multiple parties is needed. As a trusted third party SMO connects corporations, public parties, scientific institutions and the young generation in order to create and implement solutions for these societal challenges.

We are proud of the organisations that participated in the past editions. They show they care about the development of their trainees and the future of the Netherlands.
