Alumni engagement

Our alumni are actively involved in the WZB in many ways - as "Friends of the WZB" or as mentors at our Career Day, advising and supporting young researchers with their knowledge and expertise.

WZB-Alumni Interviews from 2014

Since the WZB was founded 45 years ago, some 2000 persons have worked here. These alumni form a world-wide network which we would like to make visible. The alumni are important partners in dialogue - potential advisors, project partners, multipliers, employers, political allies, volunteers, and financial supporters. And they show us that the WZB is part of a tradition that we want to preserve and develop.

In 2013 a call for alumni registration went out and the feedback was outstanding: more than 750 alumni agreed to take part in the new network.

With an alumni newsletter, we want to inform you regularly about the alumni news and special events at the WZB. If you want to be on the regular WZB mailing list, you can register your name here. Please bear with us that we will mostly communicate via e-mail.

And we are always interested in news from you: whether it is your current address or the one of a co-alumnus, a new position in academia or off-campus. In the course of time we also will offer you new ideas, stories, projects, and dialogue partners on our homepage – as long as you help us find them.
