Young Expert Programmes consists of YEP Water, YEP Agrofood, YEP Energy (the nexus) and YEP Tailor-made. It all started with YEP Water in 2013, in 2015 YEP Agrofood was added, and in 2020 YEP Energy formed the latest addition. These three programmes are all part of the subsidy programme of the ministry of Foreign Affairs. The programmes have different focus themes, but Young Experts from the different groups follow the programme in mixed groups.
An alternative option is YEP Tailor-made. YEP Tailor-made offers organisations the opportunity to purchase YEP's unique training and coaching programme, without making use of the financial support. This is suitable, for example, for organisations and programmes that are already funded by the Dutch government and, therefore, cannot receive additional financial support from YEP Programmes.
