What's the EIT Alumni Community Board all about?

In April 2016, EIT Interim Director Martin Kern appointed the first EIT Alumni Board. With a strong mandate to represent the entire EIT Alumni Community, five representatives have been nominated by the alumni associations and communities of the EIT's  Innovation Communities. The EIT has given further support to the EIT Alumni Community by providing a EIT Alumni Community Manager and nominating a representative of the EIT to also sit on the EIT Alumni Community Board, supporting and providing guidance to the Board.

At the founding meeting of the Board, Martin Kern stressed how important EIT Alumni are to the whole EIT Community, noting that the new Board has a “powerful platform” to drive collaboration initiatives, to harness the massive potential of all EIT Alumni, and to provide effective representation for the entire community. There is strong consensus within the EIT Alumni Community Board that there is much to gain from establishing the Board and further developing the Alumni Community to complement activities existing KIC Alumni associations and communities are pursuing. 

The role of the Board is to drive the community’s direction and to further develop it; to encourage an active exchange between members, to plan and implement added-value activities with and for its members; and to represent the EIT Alumni Community vis-à-vis the EIT, the KICs and relevant external stakeholders.

The current focus of the EIT Alumni Community addresses the consolidation of an operational structure for the future of the community, and the development of three priority areas: 

  • Community building and engagement 
  • Alumni Career Development
  • External Outreach and Communications.

As of April 2017, a second group of alumni took the reigns. They will steer the Alumni Community for the period April 2017 - December 2018.
