Alumni network for former students from China launched

NorAlumni China – a network for helping former students from China to stay connected with Norway and the Norwegian business sector is now in place.

The number of students from China who come to Norway to study is on the rise, but many of them lose touch with Norway once they have finished their degrees and returned home. The Research Council of Norway and Innovation Norway have therefore taken the initiative to establish the NorAlumni China network to make it easier for Chinese students in Norway to stay connected to Norway and their Norwegian contacts after they have completed their studies.

The NorAlumni China network will play an important role in future cooperation between Norway and China,” says Minister of Research and Higher Education Tora Aasland, who formally opens the network in Shanghai on 10 September.
