Wessel Meijer

In my 25-year career in the area of internationalisation, I am convinced I have obtained the necessary experiences and skills to be of added value for the EAIE Board. I have had the privilege to volunteer in many committees related with internationalisation, for example to assess Erasmus+ projects for the European Commission. For the last six years I have been working as Head of the International Office at Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands. In this responsible position I am both in charge of working for and coordinating the international agenda of my institution as well as supporting my large team at the office to achieve together the goals we are all working for. I have been active in many workshops and sessions for the EAIE and I am honoured to be one of the trainers in the Academy. The EAIE is growing and professionalising quickly, which shows its added value for higher education in Europe and beyond. In order to prolong our success story, we should make sure that our organisation remains innovative and agile, in order to meet the changing needs of both its members and its community at large who benefit from us. This will be my priority.
