Carolien WagenaarCarolien Wagenaar will succeed Erwin Cardol as programme manager of Seed Valley. Carolien studied communication science in Utrecht and has worked for the programme office since 2014. She is now a familiar face in the student target group, has extensive experience in the field of communication, and has built her own network in our industry and region. Carolien is the driving force behind the recently launched market campaign, the new website, and various projects involving students.

Under Carolien’s daily management, the Seed Valley programme office will continue to develop at full steam. This summer we will celebrate the ten-year anniversary with a variety of events and several interesting education projects. In short: there’s plenty to do. In the coming months we will start the hiring process to find an enthusiastic project officer to join our Seed Valley team in Hoorn.

In March, Erwin Cardol will become the director of Demokwekerij Westland. The link with Seed Valley will remain, given that Demokwekerij Westland is part of Proeftuin Zwaagdijk.
