International Alumni Network Netherlands (IANN)

The International Alumni Network Netherlands (IANN) is the alumni circle of the UvA Alumni Association AUV for all international and international-minded UvA alumni living in the Netherlands.

Stay connected

The International Alumni Network Netherlands (IANN) is a network for UvA alumni with a wide range of academic backgrounds, coming from different parts of the world. The circle aims to enable alumni to stay connected with the University and UvA alumni community across the Netherlands.

The IANN collaborates with Young IGC and Young Patrons Circle of the Dutch National Opera & Ballet to help build a network of talented young professionals in Amsterdam.
