The Holland Alumni network is an initiative funded by the Dutch government and aims to facilitate an international network of Holland Alumni, future alumni, Netherlands Alumni Associations, Dutch higher education institutions, Dutch embassies and relevant organisations. A Holland Alumnus/a* is anyone  with a study, research or work experience in the Netherlands or with a study experience provided by a Dutch education institution abroad. 

Nuffic has managed the national alumni network since 2009. The network is both active online with this digital platform and offline with events and activities that are organised in the Netherlands and worldwide by Nuffic, its NESO offices, local Netherlands Alumni Associations and other partners. 

*This includes participants of Nuffic Short Courses, Tailor Made Trainings and NICHE projects.
