Orange Knowledge Programme (OKP)

The Orange Knowledge Programme aims to advance the development of the capacity, knowledge and quality of both individuals, and institutions in higher and vocational education.

This 5-year programme consists of 3 components:

  • Individual scholarships for professionals;
  • Tailor-made group training programmes;
  • Institutional projects. 

Please note: The official start of OKP will be confirmed after formal publication of the subsidy and policy outline by the Dutch government.

Until that time there may still be adjustments to comply with the policy outline.

More information about the tailor-made group trainings and institutional project calls will become available in the first half of 2018.
