Partnerships with various institutions
The Schaesberg Castle Estate Foundation works with many local and regional partners. These are listed below: some support us to promote traditional craftsmanship, others primarily for social welfare purposes.
We work with the following organisations:
- Volunteer Centres Parkstad
- Coral Group, Sittard
- NedCar WorkFit, Geleen
- Reclassification in The Netherlands, Southern Region, Roermond
- Landgraaf Construction Company, Landgraaf
- Xonar, Heerlen

The foundation works with a number of local and regional schools and other educational institutions to preserve traditional craftsmanship:
- Arcus College, Heerlen
- Vocational College PPL, Heerlen
- Construction People South, Beek
- Construction Talent South, Veldhoven
- Emma College, Heerlen
- GreenEducation ROC Citaverde, Heerlen
- Education Foundation Movare
- Summa College, Veldhoven
- Zuyd (South) High School, Maastricht
- SIEN (Schools in a Network), Panningen.
The castle is also a member of several networks of organisations. One is Revivak, lasting from 2016 until March 2019, an Interreg project in Belgium and the Netherlands that seeks to reignite interest in traditional craftsmanship and technology.
Another example is the candidature from Schaesberg Castle by IBA Parkstad, which until now is the only ‘International Construction Exhibition” in The Netherlands. IBA Parkstad stimulates sustainable, forward-looking projects that will further the development of Parkstad Limburg, and develops new and innovative functions for local monuments.
