Borderless Network is a Dutch network of knowledge institutes in the agricultural sector with a focus on international collaboration. Our goal is to deliver people with the right international green knowledge and skills to continue our lead position in agriculture.

Sectoral network

We have a multitude of sectoral orientated coalitions that cooperate closely together in the green sector. They each have their own focus and structure; yet work together in the Borderless Network projects.
