The EU ALUMNI Initiative connects former participants of EU funded mobility and exchange programmes worldwide. Its goal: To empower people, foster dialogue and increase the knowledge about the EU and its policies all around the globe.
The Initiative offers an Online Community for EU Alumni where they can meet inspiring people, keep on learning and take action for things that matter. This exclusive social network facilitates exchange among alumni as well as with EU stakeholders. Alumni can present themselves and their skills, share content and ideas with other members, and receive the latest news on EU activities worldwide.
On the other hand, it enables EU officials to get or stay in touch with their former beneficiaries, find experts and dialogue partners and build new alliances.
