DATPROF’s valuable partnerships
July 7, 2020 | Nynke Hogeveen
For those who know us well it comes as no surprise that at DATPROF we try to do so much more than just creating great TDM software. We know there’s more to life than Test Data Management solutions (although they come in quite handy). A good balance between work and personal lives has always been one of our basic beliefs. That’s why we also close partnerships outside our ‘normal’ business operations, outside the office. These partnerships all deserve some attention, so here they are.
KWF is a Dutch foundation that supports patients at every stage of life conquering cancer; for people who do not (yet) have cancer to people who cannot get better. They try to prevent cancer and make it (more) treatable. They are committed to a better quality of life for (ex)patients and their loved ones. Ultimately they do everything to ensure that patients are surrounded with the best care.
By financing scientific research, they enable tomorrow’s breakthroughs. They share knowledge and influence policy. At DATPROF we can only applaud this very much and that’s why we act as a partner for several years now. Please visit https://www.kwf.nl/en/english if you want to donate too.
Alpe d’HuZes is a unique sporting event where as much money as possible is raised for cancer research and for improving the quality of life of people with cancer. On a single day, 5000 participants will bike, hike or run the Alpe d’Huez. Attempting a maximum of six climbs, under the motto ‘giving up is not an option’. A special week full of solidarity, in which cancer is openly discussed for everyone.
In 2019, the 21 turns of the Alpe d’Huez were climbed for the fourteenth time. That year we supported the brave son of our late colleague Joost Kuipers. More information about the Alpe d’HuZes: https://www.opgevenisgeenoptie.nl/.
The youth has the future. We should help them learn anything they want and need to become successful, independent people and employees or entrepreneurs.
An important consideration to act as a partner of Hanzehogeschool Groningen, a higher professional education institution, is the likely increasing need for IT specialists in the future. The IT courses at Hanzehogeschool therefor use license-free DATPROF software to get acquainted with test data management and practice their skills.
Regional sports clubs
Exercising is important for good health. A fit body is a good basis for a fit mind. At DATPROF we believe that exercising should be fun and accessible for everyone. That’s why not only our employees get a fee for their sports subscription, but we also support regional sports clubs to help make exercising more attractive and better accessible for kids and young adults.
