Personal Statement by Jacques van der Berg

I would kindly like to express my gratitude to the Golden Key Honor Society and the Golden Key Board of Directors for the amazing support I received with the scholarship. The 2013 study abroad scholarship will definitely support me in my studies abroad, especially the research I am working on in collaboration with Stellenbosch University in South Africa and Lund University in Sweden.

 

The conduction of an evaluation and development study in both a South African and European context as mentioned above could be very interesting in the development of Packaging and Logistics. Furthermore, based on the collaboration in packaging logistics with Stellenbosch University and Lund University, the investigation of packaging systems in Europe and South Africa will be researched in my Master’s Thesis. Such studies are rare and needed in the further development of knowledge.
