The third University of Heidelberg Regional Alumni Meeting is due to take place in Prague from 1 to 3 October 1999. Invitations have gone out to all former students from eastern and central Europe. About 100 participants from 9 countries are expected to attend. With this event the University of Heidelberg continues its series of regional alumni meetings in all parts of the world.
The assembly in Prague will do much to deepen the University's contacts with graduates from this important region of Europe. On-the-spot assistance and support for the event comes from Heidelberg's official partner university, the Charles University of Prague. Rector Jürgen Siebke's reception in the halls of Prague University can look forward to the participation of the German ambassador and the local Goethe Institute. Other items on the programme are an alumni forum and a lecture by Heidelberg German studies professor Dieter Borchmeyer. The Prague meeting is the third in the ongoing series, following earlier events in Beirut (Middle East region) and Santiago de Chile (Latin America). The regional meetings are an integral element in the bid to build up and sustain close contact with former students in the framework of the Heidelberg Alumni International organisation.
