Projects & cooperations
The Dutch agricultural sector is strongly international and therefore, so is Aeres. International co-operation for Aeres has several aspects. For example, institutional cooperation, contributing to international projects of NGO’s, stimulating Dutch students to improve their international skills (languages and cultural awareness) and learning from others.
Sustainable food production
Aeres wants to contribute to finding answers for the world food problems. We do this primarily by educating people on food production or improving education in general. To do so we work together with a number of organisations in international projects.
Doing business abroad
Many agricultural companies are internationally active. As a result of that, most employees in the sector will sooner or later be in contact with people abroad. This can be working from the Netherlands or somewhere around the world. They sell or buy products or they engage in long term relationships, build businesses together. Aeres educates these professionals and is very aware of the international connections and the demands they put on those who work in the sector.
