Living Lab Logistics Indonesia Matchmaking Meeting 18 January 2013 The Hague
Friday 18 January 2013 a matchmaking meeting was held at Nuffic NESO in The Hague. In total we had over 15 students interested in the program, of which at the end only 6 fulfilled all requirements and were invited to the meeting. One student (Ms Han Kim Hoang) was not able to participate but Arjan Koeslag had a telephone interview with her. Arjan Koeslag and Frits Blessing had very interesting group discussions with the group of eligible students, followed by individual interviews. All the students proved to be very motivated to work with you and us in making the Living Lab Logistics Indonesia a success. They all had the right background, flexible attitude and drive to explore the various assignments and look forward working in your companies. Although they did not know each other they formed a very nice group. We are confident that they all are able and willing to contribute. Based upon the research questions, their background and personal interests the following match was proposed to students and companies: IPC / Mr Budi Priyanto: 4 students: - Mr Jeffrey Vroegindeweij and Mr Marnix Bakhuijzen: Cool Logistics case - Mr Gregor Settelmeier: Cool Logistics case or Fertilizer case - Ms Han Kim Hoang: Fertilizer case Samudera Indonesia / Mr Rudolf Saut: 2 students - Ms Anouk Harbers - Mr Robbert Zwartbol Witteveen + Bos: due to the limited amount of eligible students, W+B indicated that they are open to wait for a next cohort of students. After the final selection and match of the students Mr Han Dommers, Director Nuffic-NESO and Mrs Margriet Langenberg, Program Manager Logistics Education of Rotterdam University and Chairwoman of the National Platform Logistics, addressed the attendees to officially kick-off the first cohort of Living Lab Logistics Indonesia. Both stressed the importance of establishing this kind of international programs to increase the quality of education, applied research and the connection to the labor market. The kick-off meeting in Jakarta with companies, students and Indonesian universities will take place on Monday 11 February 2013. We will inform you shortly about location, time and program.
