New Huawei programme introduces students to industry

Huawei Nederland has launched the sixth edition of Seeds for the Future in collaboration with the University of Amsterdam, Leiden University, the University of Twente and Eindhoven University of Technology. In addition, ten Dutch students will travel to China to further develop their ICT knowledge and become acquainted with the industry in two weeks.

The program was kicked off last Tuesday, last Friday the students travelled to China.

With this program, Huawei wants to help young talents prepare themselves for a future in technology. In China they discover more about the latest technical developments. That’s what the students at Huawei’s headquarters do. Not only do the students gain more knowledge there, but they also gain experience in a multicultural working environment.

The Dutch government and universities have a strong focus on programmes to support the development of ICT talents. As a global supplier of ICT products and solutions, we are happy to support this. In an increasingly digital world, it is crucial to enthuse young people to further develop their digital skills, says Gert Jan van Eck, COO of Huawei Netherlands.


This year, the students focus on a specific issue: sustainability. The students will work on how technology can help to make the ICT industry and other industries more sustainable.

To this end, the students study the way in which technological innovations can make a positive contribution to society and how the innovations can be used to make the value chain more sustainable.

The students work out a case study on the subject during their trip. On their return to the Netherlands, they will give a presentation on the results.

Seeds for the Future

Seeds for the Future is a program that Huawei developed together with top universities and local partners. To this end, the company cooperates with more than 100 universities in 35 European countries. In the Netherlands, the programme was organised for the first time in 2014.
