Alumni on the East Coast: join us for inspiring presentations and a virtual toast with your fellow alumni!

On behalf of the Dutch universities, the Netherlands embassy in Washington DC and the Netherlands Innovation Network, we are happy to invite you to the NL alumni event ‘Virtual Toast on the East Coast’ on Thursday 4 March from 8 – 9.30 PM (EST). 

We look forward to raising the glass with you to a new year and new opportunities ahead! But before that, we have an interesting program for you which starts off with a word of welcome by the Dutch Ambassador to the US, André Haspels. We will continue with an inspiring keynote speech by Utrecht University alumnus, University Professor at University of Amsterdam and Director of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, Robbert Dijkgraaf. During the breakout sessions following the keynote, you will be able to catch up on news and developments from your alma mater. Then it is time to raise the glass together followed by a digital ‘borrel’ to (re)connect with fellow alumni in smaller groups.

A more detailed program can be found below.
