Second annual meeting of IMP Alumni

On 18 November 2017, the alumni and current students of the Master International Public Management and Policy of the Erasmus University Rotterdam met for the second alumni reunion. Roelof Prins, the director of De Verre Bergen Foundation, delivered the keynote speech.

After a successful launch last year, IMP Alumni Association (IMPAA) met this year for the second annual meeting. Over 60 past and current students met for the event, some of them coming from places as far away as Vienna, Stockholm or Geneva. They were joined by the former and current faculty, and the members of the IMPAA Advisory Board.

In his keynote lecture, Roelof Prins focused on the topic “Social Value for Money? The Role and Potential of Philanthropy”. The lecture and the subsequent Q&A session focused on the role of private philanthropy in addressing societal issues.

The successful evening closed with professional speed-dating and drinks. Alumni can now follow the activities of the association at its Facebook and LinkedIn pages.

It was a fantastic meeting, see below for an impression:
