Through the Holland Alumni programme, EP-Nuffic will start with the development of thematic networks on Water, Logistics and Agri & Food to connect Holland Alumni, Dutch Higher Education institutions, businesses and other relevant organisations worldwide.
Dutch Higher Education Institutions, alumni and companies will be consulted through surveys and meetings about their current activities in these fields.
Through the thematic networks, EP-Nuffic stimulates international students and alumni to not only be part of a broader Holland Alumni network, but also to form networks or chapters based on discipline, sector or theme. These networks will operate within the Holland Alumni network.
In 2016 and 2017, thematic alumni events are organised in Latin America, Asia and Africa to stimulate the set-up and maintenance of these thematic networks and to create clearer links between alumni, (Dutch) educational institutions, Dutch business and Dutch organisations.
Moreover, these events can provide long-term support and contacts for alumni who encounter subject-specific challenges in their everyday work. This way, alumni events will become even more relevant to alumni, Dutch education institutions and companies.
