On the 4th of July 2017, a Wageningen Alumni Meeting was organised in Nanjing, China. The evening was attended by sixteen alumni, who all enjoyed a lovely dinner and nice conversations.
In the late afternoon of July 4, 2017, sixteen WUR alumni gathered in the Academic Center of Nanjing Agricultural University (NAU), China. They were mainly professors and researchers from NAU, Jiangsu Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Nanjing Institute of Agricultural Sciences and Jiangsu Agribusiness Co. Ltd.
Dr. H. J.M. (Huub) Löffler, Director of Wageningen International and dr. Xiaoyong Zhang, Coordinator of China Affairs, met the alumni. After expressing welcome and introducing himself and the WUR Beijing office to the alumni, dr. Löffler briefed the major changes of Wageningen University & Research, both in education, research and daily life.
Afterwards, dr. Löffler and dr. Zhang introduced the time and themes of the Centennial celebration of WUR next year in 2018. WUR alumni can use “100 ways” to celebrate this grand “100 years’ birthday”. They also requested the alumni to visit the alumni website and renew their contact information.
The alumni who were present had an enjoyable gathering and refreshed their memory of WUR.
''We are grateful for the support of the WUR alumni office of University Fund Wageningen (#UFW) and look forward to more opportunities of cooperation in the future.
With best wishes to WUR for a great success of the centennial celebration!'
