The interactive evening programme includes brief updates from the universities, followed by a short talk by TU Eindhoven alumna Derya Sever, Supply Chain specialist at Médicos Sin Fronteras (MSF). See below.

Per tradition, our gathering concludes with a virtual borrel (BYOB) where you and fellow alumni living in Barcelona, Madrid and other parts of Spain will be mixed with each other to maximize interactions and stimulate conversations!

Presentation: MSF (Doctors without Borders)

Doctors without Borders (as it’s translated) is an international non-profit providing medical assistance to people affected by conflict, epidemics, disasters, or exclusion from healthcare.
The organization employes over 67,000 staff members working in over 70 countries.

The Barcelona based alumna speaker Derya has worked for MSF since 2017 and during her short talk will share personal field stories as well as give some insight into how complex supply chain processes can be improved in a socially responsible manner.

During the Q&A session, you will also have a chance to learn how the COVID-19 crisis has impacted their operations.

Why do Alumni Offices organise this online event?

For expats who are living outside of their own countries, alumni networks such as DEAN can be extremely useful resources for tapping into fellow alumni for advice and support particularly during crisis periods.

The new online event format has been developed to enhance local connections between alumni and is an addition to the existing channel the LinkedIn Group DEAN Spain and newly city based WhatsApp Groups.
