Thijs Fikken (Netherlands)

 "Over the last few years my interest in international planning, policies and cross-border cooperation has grown significantly. During my bachelor Human Geography and Urban and Regional Planning in Groningen I nurtured this interest, and I expect it to flourish during the Planet Europe program. The international academic atmosphere of the program is a perfect basis for a career within European spatial planning. It is a great opportunity to meet different people from different cultures and learn about their alternate perspectives on planning and policy. Within the program I hope to expand my knowledge of border regions, EU policy and European planning and regional economic development in general. Moreover, the chance to study abroad in different academic systems and my natural curiosity combine to make this a wonderful learning experience!"
