In cooperation with Van Hall Larenstein, URAIDE organizes a number of exchanges on change and innovation in international business development at IMPULSE, the innovation incubation centre of Wageningen University. In a couple of Friday afternoons, you are invited to panel discussions where representatives of public and private agencies will be discussing international business development. The 'wicket problems' that are being pitched will be unveiled and broken down to actionable intervention strategies by those attending: government administrators, experts, policy makers and entrepreneurs.
The topics in this series reflect the trends in international enterprising. Development professionals and business executives as well as policy makers may seize this opportunity to tap field perspectives from mid-career development experts and entrepreneurs, this year coming from over 14 countries in Africa and Asia. U®talks are an opportunity to exchange with the Dutch NGO, policy and business environments.
You may register for one or all of the U®talks by sending an e-mail to email@example.com indicating the session(s) you wish to attend. Timely registration is recommended as seating capacity is limited to about 60 people.
