Experiences of International knowledge workers (expats) coming to Eindhoven
A qualitative research for the workgroup ‘Agreement on housing for students and expats’
This research is one of the ways in which the workgroup investigates possible problems for expats when it comes to housing. Other studies aim(ed) at a broad exploration of problems or at obtaining information on the numbers of expats. The current study focuses on the experiences and stories of expats: what were their expectations, how did they match with reality and what are the lessons to be learned from these experiences for Eindhoven/Brainport?
In August semi-structured interviews will be held with a selection of expats (< 3 years in Eindhoven) from different backgrounds (length of stay, family situation, company). The interviews will be audio-taped for thorough analysis and in order to respect the way the interviewee expresses his or her experiences.
Currently I am looking for candidates (< 3 years in Eindhoven). I’m especially interested in expats who came with their family (since I’ve already interviewed singles). If you are available for an interview (or know someone who would be interested) and would like to participate in the research, please contact me:
