The Dutch Minister of Education, Culture and Science announced that the Nuffic will be opening 6 new Netherlands Education Support Offices (NESOs). NESOs are a joint project of Nuffic, the Dutch organization for international cooperation in higher education, and the Dutch higher education institutions. They were first established in 2001 in Beijing and Taipei, followed by Jakarta and Hong Kong in 2002 and 2003 respectively. In 2005, offices will start their activities in Vietnam and India; the Vietnam office was opened in November. From next year onwards offices will also be established in Mexico, Russia, Malaysia, Brazil and Thailand. The program runs till 2009 and will be evaluated in 2007-2008. NESOs are strategically established in countries with a growing number of students seeking international mobility. The role of the network’s offices is to raise the profile of Dutch higher education in the host countries, and to encourage two-sided cooperation and mobility between education institutions.
