first institutional collaboration project 2019 awarded 
Labour market-driven strengthening of horticulture

This week, the first institutional collaboration project of 2019 was awarded - in Tanzania. A consortium of the National Council for Technical Education (NACTE) and Maastricht School of Management focuses on strengthening the horticulture sub-sector in Tanzania. It is based on the fundamental notion that improving the quality and employability of A-TVET graduates should be based on the needs of the labour market.

The project focuses on curriculum review and development, institutional capacity development at NACTE and the 3 A-TVETs, entrepreneurship development and the establishment of a triple helix horticulture innovation platform. The project pays specific attention to inclusion of women and disadvantaged groups, labour market relevance and public-private partnerships (Tanzania-Dutch). It starts per 1 June 2019 and has a budget of €998,760 (excluding co-funding of €65,000). 

Tanzania consortium members:
- A-TVET Horticultural Training & Research Institute – Horti-Tengeru
- VETA A-TVET Mahinya College of Sustainable Agriculture

Dutch consortium members:
- Inholland University of Applied Sciences
- Q Point B.V.
- Profyta B.V.
- Sokoine University of Agriculture
- TAHA (Tanzania Horticulture Association)
- SAGCOT (Southern Agricultural Growth Corridor of Tanzania)

Stricter rules for choosing Nuffic passwords

As from 24 April 2019, Nuffic changed its password policy. New passwords for all accounts and systems of Nuffic now need to fit to more complex rules. Our system will check if the password you choose is a commonly used password, or a variety of it. Tests showed that an average of 15% of the passwords tricks people use are actually not safe enough. Our new password policy has no impact on already existing passwords.
