Opportunities Young Expert Programme

We would like to inform you that there is a fourth call for proposals for Young Expert Programmes (YEP) Water & Agrofood placements within the framework of the Netherlands-CGIAR Strategic Partnership.

The YEP programmes offers young Dutch and local professionals the opportunity to take their first steps in the international Agrofood or Water sector. The YEP placements will be one of the instruments available to strengthen the Netherlands-CGIAR Strategic Partnership.

The call is open until December 1, 2017 and offers two places for Dutch nationals and two places for local young experts. Since YEP professionals need to be employed by an organization that is registered by the Dutch Chamber of Commerce, applications are likely to involve a collaboration between a CGIAR Research Programme (CRP) and a Dutch private sector, NGO or knowledge institute partner.

You can find more details on this fourth call in the attached flyer, including the contact details of Paul va

About Hivos

Hivos is an international organisation that seeks new solutions to persistent global issues. With smart projects in the right places, we oppose discrimination, inequality, abuse of power and the unsustainable use of our planet’s resources. Counterbalance alone, however, is not enough. Our primary focus is achieving structural change. This is why we cooperate with innovative businesses, citizens and their organisations. We share a dream with them of sustainable economies and inclusive societies.
