The Association team was thrilled to host the annual Alumni Regional Groups’ meeting in Brussels on Saturday 27 October. Representatives from Sweden, London, Romania, Italy, Spain, Austria, the Netherlands and Poland as well as others – who could not join this time but supported the initiative – brainstormed over how to make the best use of the alumni platform, deepen cooperation with the Association, shared experiences and ideas of new initiatives and raise funds for scholarships and in support of the Association.
The intensive Saturday debate with a lot of new ideas and proposals was fruitful and continued with a deserved drink at Grand Central. Following up on the debates, minutes and other materials will be shared with all the groups worldwide and together we will look on the ways how to put things in practice.
Needless to say, we will stick to the tradition and are enthusiastic about organising 2019 edition of the meeting, as connecting alumni beyond the ‘Brussels bubble’, across campuses and generations is something rewarding and definitely worth a Saturday!
