Many highly-skilled professionals and researchers migrate to the Maastricht Region to broaden their professional experience, hone their specific skills and further their careers by being involved in projects ranging from scientific breakthroughs to technological firsts, matters of international security and partaking in global political negotiations. Their often equally skilled spouses contribute an immense amount to our communities and the team at Expat Centre Maastricht Region is contributing to the development of policies and programmes that supply professional opportunities to spouses under the Dual Careers programmes.
