The Alumni-Club: an International Network

With the founding of the HWK Alumni Club in 2009, a broad private and professional network of former and current fellows of the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg has emerged for the first time, made up of outstanding scholars from throughout the world. This network is intended not only to promote exchange between its members, open up new career opportunities, and carry forward the research ideas that emerged at the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg. The Alumni Club is also intended to promote the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg materially and ideally, so that future generations of fellows and research in the Northwest can continue to profit from the unique concept and the atmosphere of the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg in the future.

Central Themes

  • Incorporation into an international private and professional network of scholars from all HWK research areas
  • Receive information on workshops, symposia, conferences, research projects and results, and current scientific developments
  • Exclusive contacts to prominent scientists
  • Customized information about and faster exchange with other members of the network
  • Career services: classes, jobs, support
  • Immaterial and material support of the academic goals of the Hanse-Wissenschaftskolleg
