European Media and Broadband Centre (EMBC)


The idea for the European Media and Broadband Center has been developed within the BIRD project. The aim is to support the learning process of students in the ICT and Media sector by working closely together with companies in these sectors. Students are confronted with ‘real-life’ tasks and have to come up with results in interdisciplinary teams. The companies have the opportunity to find the talents they need. The innovative aspect is the creation of a centre where people and companies of various levels and disciplines work together, not only nationally, but also around the whole North Sea Region. Exchange of experiences between the companies is possible as well as the exchange of students between the partners in the participating countries. Students learn and work together, and broaden their knowledge within an international partnership.

Short description: 
Partnership between companies and training institutes in the North Sea Region: 'real life' tasks from the companies will support the learning process and motivation of the students
