Built in phases
Danida Alumni Network is being set up in phases.
In the first half of 2016, the focus was on building and launching the web portal and reaching out to Master’s and PhD fellows, and to Danish educational institutions of higher learning to join the network. In addition, and in cooperation with the Danish embassies in Ghana and Vietnam two local alumni networks were established.
In the second half of 2016, the emphasis will be on enabling short-term fellows to join the network.
The next step will be to encourage Danish international companies to sign up. Company registrations on the web platform will start in the first quarter of 2017. It will enable Danida alumni and Danish business to benefit from each other’s knowledge and network.
