Partnerships with businesses and institutions

VHL participates in partnerships between educational institutions, knowledge centres and businesses. For example, various educational institutions come together at the Dairy Campus in Leeuwarden, including VHL and Wageningen University. It is here that entrepreneurs and researchers are working on innovation and education. We join forces in the field of water in the Centre of Expertise Water technology (CEW) in Leeuwarden.

Labour market advisory committees: education and business

Our lecturers are motivated to keep the training programmes up to date and to ensure that our students are well-prepared at the start of their career. This is why each training programme at VHL has an employment market advisory committee that includes external individuals from business who critically evaluate the study programmes; will the students from VHL meet the demands businesses impose on starters nowadays?
