Kennis DC Logistiek


Every year many students complete their studies in Logistics via a company internship or a graduation research. After months of research, students come up with recommendations that companies can implement to improve their functioning. However, little is known to what extent to these recommendations are actually implemented by companies and their motivation to do so.

As follow up of an earlier pilot, NHTV bundles forces with the logistics educations of Hogeschool Rotterdam, Hogeschool Amsterdam, & Hogeschool Windesheim. The goal of the project is to get an overview of the factors leading to the implementation of recommendations from graduation report by logistic companies as well as the factors preventing this.

The outcomes will help students, companies, and the educational institutions to get more out of the internship programs.
