Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands
René Teunissen

My name is René Teunissen. As a specialist in international education and comprehensive internationalisation strategies – and having participated in the EAIE Health and Welfare Education Expert Community steering group for eight years (four as Chair) – I am well placed, if you vote for me, to support ongoing efforts in connecting people in the EAIE community and jointly driving the network.  

Overseeing and supporting the EAIE’s vision, mission and values requires collaborating with those who operationalise these things in their daily work. For me, this has been an important driver in connecting the Expert Community chairs over the past two years, and I would like to continue doing this from within the General Council. 

At Erasmus University Rotterdam, I am overseeing the development and implementation of joint Master’s degree programmes within our UNIC European University, and I focus on support structures for international education. In my previous job, I was responsible for strategic internationalisation policy development in healthcare education and I oversaw international collaborative projects.  

Over 20 years of higher education and internationalisation experience has provided me with the skills and tools needed for my ongoing and committed support for the EAIE and the General Council. 

Thanks for your vote!
