Local companies

Our students visited the local companies Callebaut (chocolate) and Vicaris (a brewery) in Belgium.

Our students visited the local companies Centimfe, FRUBAÇA and the glass bottle company Vidrala (GALLO VIDROS) in Portugal.

In Italy our students visited “la Fabbrica”, an important ceramics firm in Castel Bolognese and “Cà Monti”, a well-known rural farm house located in Sassoleone, in the right middle of the hills of Romagna on the border with Tuscany. During the visit at the ceramics, the production process could be observed, going from the clay selection to the finished product, exhibited in their showrooms. At “Cà Monti” after the presentation of the surrounding area, of the company and of their biological production, the students were offered the taste of products that could also be bought.

We thank the next companies for letting us visit them and for presenting their company to our students.

Local councils

Students have contacted the city councils from Dendermonde, Imola, Leiria and Lübbecke for more information about the local economy.

On November 18, 2016 German students met Claus Buschmann, who is responsible for business and education development at the local council in Lübbecke. He described the economic situation in Lübbecke and explained that it is characterized by so-called “hidden champions”. These are companies that are not that well known, but still internationally leading in their line of business. Examples for these companies are Dannemann (https://www.dannemann.com/) and Westfleisch (http://www.westfleisch.de). Claus Buschmann explained as well that, because companies like those are located in Lübbecke, the city is economically well-positioned. That is why Lübbecke does not get any subsidies or other financial support.

Interview with Dirk Abbeloos, schepen / councillor of Local Economics at Dendermonde. He explains how the local council can help local companies with infrastructure and organising job markets. Just like Claus Buschman he talks about the hidden champions among the local companies. He remarks that there is still a gap between schools and companies. He notices that it's also difficult for companies to find useful training positions for young students and that teachers are often not aware of the potential of company visits for their lessons. He concludes that the LIFE Project is very valuable also because the students travel, make acquaintance with a new culture and learn to adapt to a host family.
