BD students in Netherlands urged to work as bridge
Bangladesh Ambassador to Netherlands Sheikh Mohammed Belal has urged the students to work as a bridge between Bangladesh and the Netherlands for innovation and creativity.
“Today, we’re here to give you a platform with Bangladesh in heart,” the Ambassador said urging the students to work hard to convert their “know how", gained in the Netherlands, into productive knowledge.
Over 50 Bangladeshi students from different universities in the Netherlands gathered at Bangladesh House in The Hague for a seminar on Saturday organized by the Embassy of Bangladesh in collaboration with EP-Nuffic, the organisation responsible for internationalising Dutch education.
The objective of the seminar was to provide the students with a platform to exchange their problems, ideas, thoughts with the Embassy and the EP-Nuffic, according to a message received here on Monday.
Besides, students from ISS, UNESCO-IHE, Wageningen UR, TU-Delft, TU-Eindhoven, TU-Twente, Hague University, Leiden University and other Universities, professors, alumni, officials from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Netherlands and the officials from EP-Nuffic attended the seminar.
Students and academics in their interventions expressed their happiness in the administration of EP-Nuffic but urged to consider more publicity in Bangladesh for recruitment of students in the Netherlands.
Students also sought assistance for adequate job coaching, career planning assistance and internship opportunities in the Netherlands.
Prof Moors from Wageningen University shared his experience working with Bangladesh in climate resilience preparedness, Bangladesh Delta Plan 2100, Water management and agriculture.
