Aranco is particularly active in six focus areas: public-private partnerships, cross-border cooperation, healthcare, education, business & labor market and government, or combinations thereof.
Our labor market-related projects in particular are often cross-border in nature. A good example is the Werkinzicht project, which aims to achieve a better match between the supply and demand of work in border regions. In the course of 2019, we also completed the coordination of a multi-year Interreg project aimed at the creation of a cross-border information structure at the Dutch-Flemish border. We are also active on the German-Dutch border in the field of cross-border labor mobility, with the project “Labor Market Platform Euregio Rhine-Waal”.
In the field of business & labor market, we wrote plans for various regions (South Limburg, North and Central Limburg and Eindhoven) in the context of the Strong Technology Education (STO) scheme. In addition, as in previous years, we have also developed a number of applications in the context of the ‘Regional Investment Fund (RIF) MBO’ scheme. These projects often took the form of public-private partnership constructions, in which, in addition to education and local authorities, the regional business community was also closely involved.
Healthcare is an important area of focus for Aranco. In addition to our independent initiative PH-Limburg (aimed at bringing public health initiatives in Limburg to the attention), we have, among other things, written a Limburg-wide regional vision for mbo-hbo care education, aimed at improving the connection between education and healthcare practice.
