Alumniportal Deutschland

Alumniportal Deutschland is a community for people who have studied, carried out research, worked or completed advanced training in Germany or at a German institution abroad.

Alumniportal Deutschland

The Alumniportal Deutschland is a social network designed to promote networking and sharing of information among Germany-Alumni, companies, universities and organisations. It offers its users the opportunity to get in touch with Germany-Alumni from around the world as well as companies in order to discuss specialist issues, develop their skills and benefit from the expertise of others.

Alumni & Partner: The Network 

The network is provided free of charge and is open to Alumni, that is, individuals from around the world who have studied worked or conducted research in Germany. Anyone who has received education or training at a German institution abroad is welcome to become a member of the portal.

It also offers a platform for companies, universities and organisations operating at the international level who wish to stay or get in touch with Germany-Alumni.

What does Alumniportal Deutschland offer for Alumni? 

With its two core areas, the Community and the Topics, it is an all-in-one tool for communication, innovation and collaboration, helping to promote long-term international cooperation with alumni in the areas of culture, education and science. For Germany-Alumni, the Alumniportal Deutschland is a worldwide social network and partner for success, allowing them to benefit from valuable contacts, innovations, career opportunities and cooperation.

As a global network with alumni from various fields of expertise, the Alumniportal turns its attention to a topic which is currently indeed the largest global project: The 2030 Agenda with its 17 global goals for sustainable development

Vision: Collaboration with Alumni

The vision is to see the Alumniportal Deutschland become an active alumni networking hub for sharing information internationally, increasing the efficiency and sustainability of international cooperation. The benefits reaped from online networking and information-sharing should trickle all the way down to cooperation activities on the ground.

The Alumni Project

Behind the Alumniportal Deutschland is a cooperation project headed up by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and involving the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the Goethe-Institut. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and supported by the Federal Foreign Office.
