This research project (funded by the European MSCA-RISE program) aims to provide high-quality, peer reviewed and evidence-based information on Transnational Diaspora Entrepreneurship.
In an international exchange program involving 32 research centres and universities the practices and findings of TDE research are investigated, evaluated and facilitated for sharing in order to create a global, extended university network.
Activities involve the participation in visits and reporting through The Network University. In April/May 2016 I stayed at Al Akhawayan University in Morocco.
A member of the jury for the assessment of SPARK (former IntEnt) Remigrant Diaspora Entrepreneurs ‘ plans.
SPARK develops higher education and entrepreneurship so that young ambitious people are empowered to lead their post-conflict societies into prosperity.
As a member of the jury, at least twice a year I assess the business plans of remigrant entrepreneurs to, for instance, Afghanistan, Somalia or Suriname. Next to an advisory function towards the SPARK management, the jury also offers practical advice to the remigrant entrepreneur-to-be.
