The Dutch Platform for International Education (PIE) was established in 2002 by a number of institutes for Higher Education in the Netherlands that are active in development cooperation.
The aim of the Platform is to promote activities of the Dutch Institutes for Higher Education in the field of institutional strengthening of education and research capacity in developing countries. These activities may entail education, research and/or consultancy, aiming at students, staff, mid-career professionals and institutions.
Membership of the Platform is open to all Dutch universities, universities for professional education and international education institutes. Most of these institutions active in development cooperation are member of PIE.
