Alumni Network

alumni.jpg​Welcome to the North-South Alumni Network!

Altogether, the NCCR North-South programme enabled 140 researchers to complete a PhD within the programme’s multi-, inter-, and transdisciplinary set-up. During the programme’s 12-year duration (2001-2013), these Alumni dealt with a great variety of development- and global change-related issues, aiming to contribute to sustainable development through research. Their experience ranges from academic research in the natural, social, and technical sciences, to development practice in nine different regions of the world. New Alumni have been joining this group after completing their specialization in “Global Change, Innovation and Sustainable Development” by attending courses offered by the International Graduate School (IGS) North-South since 2012.

The North-South Alumni Network was created in August 2008 to ensure that these researchers’ valuable experiences and insights are made available to the global research and development communities. The navigation bar on the right-hand side leads you to the list of alumni according to research fields or regions. Feel free to check on our former members’ PhD projects! Access to their profiles can be gained by connecting with them via their individual profiles on LinkedIn.

All Alumni can apply for membership in the North-South Alumni Network group in LinkedIn . This Network is a closed group created in 2014 to ensure that former NCCR North-South and IGS North-South members can keep in touch with one another. NCCR North-South and IGS North-South Alumni can modify their LinkedIn profile, engage in an ongoing discussion, request help with something or communicate new ideas, events, activities, and publications, use the Job section for advertising, searching for, or communicating a job of interest to the network, found a sub-group within the North-South Alumni Network, and benefit from a continuously growing pool of expertise for research and other professional purposes after joining the closed LinkedIn groupe.
