BRINGING TOGETHER ACTORS OF CHANGE
The Bosch Alumni Network brings together former and current fellows, grantees and staff members of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and its partners. By connecting network members with common interests but different backgrounds, cross-sectoral exchange and international collaborations are fostered. The platform boschalumni.net connects the community online.
For more than 50 years the Robert Bosch Stiftung has supported individuals who want to contribute to positive societal change. The Bosch Alumni Network unites these individuals under a common “Bosch identity” and helps them to learn from peers, to exchange with experts from other sectors, and to jointly implement their ideas.
The Bosch Alumni Network is clustered thematically and regionally. In thematic clusters such as media, governance, or education network members find likeminded partners to discuss their ideas or challenges and to organize projects with others. Bosch Alumni Network Regional Coordinators organize regional activities that bring network members together across sectors. The online platform boschalumni.net is the central communication tool for the whole network and currently lists more than 4.000 active users.
The Bosch Alumni Network was formally initiated in 2017. The network has around 5.000 – 10.000 members from across the globe. It is a cooperation of the International Alumni Center (iac Berlin) and the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
