ACEEPT is an European network of university of applied sciences in tourism. NHTV is an official partner of this network. Every year they run a short-term intensive international programme, based on a specific theme related to tourism. This year’s theme focussed on: ‘Slow Tourism’.

Emely Aarsen, Sebastiaan van Kemenade, Kimberley Souisa, Jasmijn Spaargaren, Nikita de Waal and Nádia Zijderveld dos Santos visited the event under the supervision of Remco Wachelder. They worked together on several tasks in an international atmosphere of students, professionals and lecturers, consisting of 10 countries and 22 nationalities.

According to the great number of positive reactions, the outcome of the project week can be called very successful and satisfactory for all attendees. It has offered an excellent opportunity for sharing knowledge and expertise among the stakeholders. The students have taken the opportunity to improve their personal and professional skills. And lecturers have discussed the opportunity to develop joint curricula or establish networks for mobility. Furthermore this network is of added value to our academy within the framework of internationalisation.

The next edition of the ACEEPT project week will take place at HTW Saar University of Applied Sciences in Saarbrücken, Germany in November 2017.
