An internship abroad is an adventure and a lifelong experience gained. You will set foot in a country with a different culture and environment, meet new people, and create wonderful memories. To assist with this the Living Lab provides free assistance in arranging your internship in the Netherlands or Canada. Annually, students go for their internship or graduation abroad.

The internship and graduation projects that we organize in the area of sustainability fit perfectly in the level of education in both countries and provide a challenge for all students who want to do an intern abroad!

Universities (of Applied Sciences)

Universities are increasingly feeling the need for internationalization, the markets are globalizing and human capital is moving around at a rapid pace. In order to advance this creates the need to further globalize universities as well to increase the educational programs and strengthen the human capital it produces. The Living Lab assists in this by providing a platform for international cooperation among several stakeholders within universities, government, and industry. It relinquishes the need for individual agreements and gives a central point of contact.


The living lab provides the following benefits for a university:

  • International cooperation
  • Student and professor mobility
  • Joint applied research
  • Joint developments of education programs
  • Special education programs (e.g. MOOCs and Pressure Cooker Weeks)
