In 2014, the Slovak DBU Alumni Association was founded. The former fellowship holders offer to advise new applicants in the preparation of their application documents and in the preparation of the selection interview. The Alumni Association is also intended to be a communication platform for current and former fellowship holders and external interested parties as well as a docking point for linking with alumni associations of other countries of the DBU fellowship programme. In addition, there is an annual alumni meeting with the former Czech fellowship holders together. The meetings always take place alternately in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Contact persons are Dr. Tatiana Harcinikova and Dr. Martin Labuda.
