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.

Internship and assignments

Developing a central digital platform for (international) internships and graduation assignments in close collaboration and in line with business needs: that’s the aim of the theme ‘internship and assignments. We will develop a joint (international) green internship market where companies, students, internships, agricultural councils and knowledge institutions in the green sector can find each other for international internship and graduation assignments. Ultimately, it’s our ambition to link this platform to the alumni platform.

In this program part, the concept of Jungle Talks, which has already been established with the help of business, will be connected. Jungle Talks matches top entrepreneurs with international talent. Students meet future employers in a virtual jungle to match inspirational online entrepreneurs with top talent. The aim is to further develop this concept with other educational interventions that match the needs of businesses and several educational institutions.

Creating a central digital platform for (international) internships and graduation is one of the themes within the development of ‘Internationalisation’, which is part of our ‘Dutch green education development agenda’. Borderless Network is a leading partner in the development of Internationalisation and its relative themed initiatives.
