The Hungarian Alumni Network of the DBU
In 2008, the Hungarian Alumni Network was founded in order to ensure that contact between current and former scholarships recipients can be maintained and to build a network of environmental experts. In addition, work with other alumni organisations of the DBU is to be promoted.
The alumni actively participate in publicising the scholarship programme in Hungary. They help the candidates with their applications, and provide important information and tips about the stay abroad. The alumni are present at the introductory seminars and help integrate current scholarship recipients into the alumni network. The DBU awards the scholarships at a festive ceremony in Hungary, where the new scholarship recipients can meet the members of the alumni network and become acquainted with the work they do.
With the support of the DBU, the Hungarian network organises national and international workshops, scientific symposia and excursions (e.g. Danube Workshop 2011) that aim to promote the exchange of information and experiences in the field of environmental research and between the respective countries.
