Nuffic and Nuffic Neso South Africa - in close cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs - are proud to announce the first edition of the Orange Knowledge Exchange Series on the nexus between Water, Food Security and Energy in Pretoria, South Africa.

As a valued alumnus/alumna and scholarship recipient of the Orange Knowledge Programme, Netherlands Fellowship Programme or Niche Programme you have been preselected for the first edition of the Orange Knowledge Exchange Series on the nexus between Water, Food Security and Energy at the Future Africa Campus of the University of Pretoria, South Africa, from 3 until 5 September 2019.

This event is an initiative of Nuffic, the Holland Alumni network and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Its aim: to create a regional platform to develop capacity in the selected thematic areas and to foster networking and stimulate collaboration between alumni, sector specific stakeholders, knowledge institutions and governmental bodies.

During the event we will take a closer look at the environmental challenges and opportunities for sustainable development in the southern regions of the African continent, with a focus on South Africa, Mozambique and Tanzania. Besides sharing and gaining knowledge in the set areas of expertise, participants will also acquire skills in science communication and social media and be inspired by relevant site visits in the surrounding area.


We are working on an interesting, interactive and fun programme which will include:

  • Local and international keynote speakers on water, food security and energy;
  • Thematic interactive discussions and workshops on theme-specific and more general topics;
  • Site visits to projects and institutions in the area;
  • Networking and socialising with like-minded professionals.

The outcome of the selection cannot be disputed.
