The fellowship holders supported so far have joined the Serbian Alumni Association in 2012 to ensure continuous contact among current and former fellowship holders and to build up a network of environmental experts.

The Alumni Association actively participates in the promotion of the fellowship programme in Serbia, helps or supports the candidates with their application, provides important information and tips for the stay abroad and is represented at the introductory seminar. With the support of the DBU, the Serbian Alumni Association organises an annual meeting as well as national and international workshops. Contact persons are Natasa Dragutinovic and Dr. Ana Petrovic.
