The Hague Network was founded in 2017 and consists of a group of seven universities striving to reinforce internationalization with a strategic alliance.
The Hague network seeks to both improve the overall quality of education and to broaden the perspectives underpinning it in order to prepare students for the globalized world and, particularly, the world of work. As important, is to embrace change in pedagogy via technology where this can improve and enhance traditional educational practices.
These are the members of the network, besides UFV: The Hague University of Applied Sciences (The Netherlands), Masaryk University (Czech Republic), Derby University (United Kingdom), Tampere University of Applied Sciences (Finland), Universitá degli Studi di Cagliari (Italy) and Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences (Germany).
