The aim of the project Hiphpotentials Crossing Borders is to help students from Dutch and Germany universities of applied sciences to gain work experience in the regional, cross-border job market. Students have the opportunity of making contact with potential, regional employers at an early stage – in their second year – and, as a result, will focus much more on the (EU) regional job market upon graduation. This will counteract the current movement of highly qualified graduates away from the region to a certain extent. Both the students and the participating mentors from regional organizations benefit from this cross-border cooperation and will be able to expand their network on the other side of the border.
The Highpotentials Crossing Borders- project includes both training and teaching units for students and businesses and the opportunity of getting to know different businesses in the region. The project revolves around mentoring; an arrangement where the students are linked to a mentor at a business for the period of one academic year.
