Thursday 11th July 2019 | 14:00 - 18:00 | Estelar de la Feria Hotel, Bogotá

Over the years close to 100 skilled Colombian professionals have been awarded Danida Scholarships. The vast majority have traveled to Denmark to complete courses in the field of food safety under Denmark’s Strategic Sector Cooperation Project in Colombia.

Following their scholarships and time in Denmark, a group of these Danida alumni have joined forces with the aim of consolidating a Danida Colombia Alumni Network. This network will now be officially launched at a dedicated event on July 11 in Bogotá, which will convene Danida alumni from across Colombia to re-connect with each other and with Denmark.

The event is hosted with support from Danida Fellowship Centre and the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
