First Alumni Meeting of the Informal Wageningen Alumni Network Vietnam, Friday February 26 2016

University Fund Wageningen organises on a regular basis informal alumni events all over the world. Such events are great opportunities for meeting new people, and for alumni to reconnect with one another through their shared Wageningen University background. On Friday the 26th of February the very first alumni meeting in Vietnam was held in Can Tho.

The initiators of the Informal Wageningen Alumni Network Vietnam, in collaboration with University Fund Wageningen, are happy to announce that the first alumni meeting in Can Tho, Vietnam on Friday February 26, 2016 was a great succes:

"The meeting took place in a cozy setting at the College of Environment and Natural Resources of the University of Can Tho. Many of the participants are now senior researchers, lecturers and professors. 

During the gathering, we, alumni of Wageningen University in different time, had a nice time reintroducing each other, remembering nice stories and experiences that we had in WUR in the small but great Wageningen. We also took time to update about what we are working on, and promised to continue nurturing this network. Given the almost 40 alumni in Can Tho University alone, the university is going to be the contact hub for WUR alumni get together in the future."
