An important part of the training programme is to enable and stimulate Young Experts to use and develop their network, as an extensive network has a lot to offer. By actively engaging and exchanging within their (online) network Young Experts can exchange knowledge and experiences. YEP offers Young Experts access to meet Young Experts, current and alumni through online platforms and online meetups. In this network practical knowledge, job and project opportunities, and connections can be gained.
Additionally, our partners, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP), the Food & Business Knowledge Platform (F&BKP) and the NL Enterprise Agency, are valuable network partners the Young Experts have access to. In the countries of secondment the Dutch Embassies also support the YEP network in the specific countries.
