Cleverland, the cross-border platform that enthuses young adults for the attractive study and work opportunities in the Euregion Rhine-Meuse-north, organizes four online ‘Round Table’ sessions and speed dates during the Limburg Leads fair. This strengthens the Euregional cooperation, as well as the connection between the regions North and South Limburg on the Dutch side and Niederrhein on the German side.
Online Round Table Sessions and speed dating
In collaboration with Limburg Leads, Cleverland offers four online Round Table Sessions and speed dating sessions to bring together highly trained German and Dutch job seekers and employers. Target groups are college and university students, recent graduates, employees and companies. Companies and students can participate for free and register through this registration link.
Reduce the barrier effect of the border
“With cross-border matchmaking, we want to set an example of how we can work better together in Europe in the field of education and business, and how we can reduce the barrier effect of the border on education, work and life of citizens,” says Vincent. Pijnenburg, lecturer Cross-border Business Development Fontys Venlo and member of the Cleverland project team, on the general context of the cooperation between Limburg Leads and Cleverland.
North and South Limburg are knowledge regions with the aim of strengthening cross-border cooperation and attracting, retaining and integrating newcomers into the Euregional labor market. Limburg Leads is the Euregional B2B event that brings together companies, governments and knowledge institutions, both physically and online, with the aim of meeting each other, multiplying knowledge and doing good business.
Connecting students and job seekers to companies
The new cleverland.eu portal offers cross-border information on studying, working and living in the Euregion Rhine-Meuse-north. It wants to connect students, recent graduates and employees with the business community in the provinces of Limburg and North Rhine Westphalia in various interactive ways. This way, the platform reduces the barrier effect of the border on study, work and life. Limburg Leads, with Talent as one of the four main themes, sees a future in the online platform.
Strong partners work together
The collaboration between Cleverland and Limburg Leads is co-supported by WSP Noord-Limburg, Cross-Border Labor Service (SGA) and the Interreg project Growth and development into Cross-border Agropole, the German-Dutch Business Club Maas Rhein and the Cross-border Business Development lectorate at Fontys Venlo.
Nice addition to the Limburg Leads program
Fair manager Jop Thissen on this subject: “We see that many young adults from the Dutch province of Limburg are interested in the possibility to start or continue their career in the border region, but they often do not know how to find the right employers or suitable positions. It is very smart that Cleverland responds to this with an innovative online platform that brings together students, employees and companies in the Euregion. The online offer of Cleverland during Limburg Leads is a very nice addition to our program, which has Euregional entrepreneurship and talent as important topics. “
