First ever EU Alumni Initiative Networking Event in Montreal
The EU Alumni Initiative has kicked off its activities with a small networking event in Montreal on the 14th of November 2019 at the Hotel Place d'Armes.

This informal reunion may set the baseline for future gatherings in other provinces in Canada, aiming at welcoming EU alumni in an open and collaborative atmosphere. The participating alumni enjoyed a unique event closing, joining the concert of the European Union Youth Orchestra – one of a series of guest concerts in several Canadian cities in mid-November.The EU Delegation to Canada fostered through this event its contacts with the existing EU alumni communities, establishing personal connections while building on the recently created LinkedIn group for the EU alumni in Canada. The EU Alumni Initiative is an EU funded project that is strengthening the ties between former beneficiaries of EU funded programmes and EU institutions worldwide.
