Founded in 2016 as Expat Centre Leiden, we offer support to international newcomers and their employers in Leiden, Leiderdorp, Voorschoten and Zoeterwoude.
Our aim is to help highly-skilled internationals and the companies they work for by providing BSN registration appointments, sharing information and advice, and organising events. All of our services (except for BSN registration appointments) are free.
We do this because international talent is essential for the region to grow as a destination for knowledge and innovation.
By helping organisations directly, the climate for settling can be improved quicker than by solely targeting the internationals. Within the target groups ‘Organisations’ and ‘Internationals’, the LIC will develop along four axes: Talent, Community, Hospitality and Strategy. Each of these axes is important and their sum will create a flourishing talent region where companies are eager to settle.Download the summary here
