Alumni meetings

Here you will find out about the great variety of the Alumniportal’s events in many different countries – from Alumni Sustainability Talks via “Stammtisch”-meetings to “SprachCafés”. And there is also information about alumni events hosted by a range of German organisations and world-wide alumni networks.

International exchange with and among Germany-Alumni thrives on personal encounters. Every year, numerous expert and networking events bring alumni from all over the world together to share their experiences of Germany, exchange their views on current topics of science, international cooperation or the 2030 Agenda, develop new ideas and projects together and expand their networks of relationships.

Would you like to tell us about your alumni event on the Alumniportal Deutschland? We look forward to hearing from you at redaktion(at)
