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 meet-ups. 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, the Netherlands Food Partnership 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.
Lastly, the different partners of the private sector, NGO’s and the knowledge institutes, the organisations the Young Experts work for, are part of the YEP Global Network.
