Partners, Network and Stakeholders

SEECE is a public-private partnership network from the university of applied sciences of Arnhem van Nijmegen (HAN) with the energy-related business world. In this organization, companies, education, research, and governments are united, they are represented, and they work together on a reliable, affordable electricity supply for a sustainable world.

We consider parties that make a concrete contribution in that cooperation as our partners. This concerns parties outside HAN, but also parties within HAN, such as the School of Engineering and Automotive with its energy-related lectorates, Associate Degree, Bachelor and Master courses and the professional post graduate courses.

SEECE is an active partner in national and regional networks and partnerships such as the national lectorates platforms (as www.lectorenplatformLEVE.nl, www.wijzijnKATAPULT.nl, www.deUItdagingWerkt.nl etc.).

We also explicitly relate to institutions or sectors that have an interest in (the objectives and activities of) SEECE, but do not want or cannot call themselves a formal “partner” of our Centre of Expertise, such as governments and the Top Sector Energy. They allow themselves to be represented as stakeholders in our directors- and advisory councils and contribute through subsidies for concrete projects and in joint communication.

Our partners recognize that only through structural reciprocal cooperation sufficient adequately educated energy professionals and innovation power can be realized for their company, their sector, or their region in the current transition to a sustainable, reliable, and affordable energy supply. They experience the added value that is realized through their contribution to this collaboration.

Partners contribute by

  • actively participate in research and/or HCA projects. Usually projects with a subsidy in which they share.
  • making knowledge and employees available for energy-related education and research. For example for contributions to our seminars, workshops, conferences, and symposia; but also guest lectures and excursions.
  • making facilities, materials, prototypes, etc. available for education and research.
  • investing in “lifelong development programs” for their employees through our post-graduate education courses and training.
  • actively participate in one of our learning communities (for example around hydrogen or district-oriented energy transition).
  • (co-)investing in energy-related learning routes for our students, in particular because they act as client for interdisciplinary business projects, especially for 2nd-year students, whose company often only later experiences the added value of that investment.
  • (co-)investing in our hybrid learning environments by adopting a project space in the new Energy Innovation lab Connectr, work together with HAN students and researchers and also use that space for their visibility / expressions to students, partners, and visitors.
  • be actively represented in our SEECE Advisory Councils
  • contribute to our SEECE networking and / or the content and distribution of our communicative statements or our articles, newsletter, website, etc.
  • otherwise contribute financially.
  • Per partner, the contribution can therefore be very different in nature and size and can also grow or vary over time. The value is mainly determined by the unique character / expertise of the contribution.

Other benefits

  • Partners experience the added value for their innovation and human capital objectives through the public-private partnership network in this unique centre of expertise for sustainable electrical energy.
  • Partners are part of the SEECE network and also come into contact with the other partners.
  • Partners come into contact with Energy students.
  • Partners and stakeholders are listed on the website or SEECE, www.seece.nl.
  • Partners and stakeholders participate in energy-related events of SEECE free of charge.
  • Partners can let students work on business assignments.
  • Partners apply for subsidies for concrete projects and in joint communication.
