Not only for social networking where members can create, post, comment to and read from their own interest and specific forums. However more important to be part of an active virtual community. Sharing knowledge, exchanging experiences, helping each other to fulfil their dreams as FM professionals. Aiming for a powerful platform where open, transparent and sustainable partnerships are established, based on mutual trust and shared goals.
The role of the Education Group is summarized below:
Through student and staff exchange, students actually see the differences in not only FM knowledge, but also in how to work together in interesting and present-day projects. The wish of the Education Group is to address all FM students through Europe to experience this. The intention of the Education Group is to reach these young professionals and learn them about the added value of the EuroFM platform. This will not only benefit the students, however as well as all other EuroFM members who can learn a great deal from the next FM generation. The Education Group, as part of EuroFM, can bring the past, current and future generations of the FM profession together, exchanging needs and demands of today and tomorrow. These initiatives give students access to the FM market through new (digital) portals, where business, young talents, educators and researchers meet.
