You signed up for an event
NANR and Nuffic Neso Russia warmly welcome you to attend our annual Sinterklaas celebration on 9 December.

On the 19 of November we invite all the NANR member and friends to celebrate our 5th Anniversary. 

In 2011 NANR was officially launched by Dutch Prime minister Mark Rutte. Since then the number of our members has more than doubled. Currently there are 1317 members living in various countries worldwide and all over Russia. We have organized more than 65 events in Russia and The Netherlands: learned from the leading Dutch and Russian experts, had fun with football and ice-skating, partied during Queen’s (King’s) Days, participated in preserving cultural heritage mission. There’s been a lot! 

So why don’t we celebrate these five productive and inspiring years with a big orange party? We will bring your Dutch experience back with traditional Dutch food and games; you will meet your university mates from other cities and have a chance to catch up with the alumni who work in the same professional area as you do. We invite representatives of EP-Nuffic who will tell you about global Holland Alumni Network. And of course we prepared a lot of quests, competitions and lotteries and other surprises where you can have fun and win some nice prizes. 

Dress code: Cocktail attire.

What kind of a birthday party is it without presents? We brought it to the next level and prepared presents for YOU! Along with fun contests, lottery and competitions. Click the button to read more about what and how you will win during our birthday party.

On 8 October NANR and the Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands invite all the alumni to a Welcome Back! event. 

Welcome Back! is an occasion to welcome new members and introduce them to our association. It is also a wonderful chance for everyone to meet, catch up, learn something new and simply spend a lovely Saturday afternoon in good company. 

This year will be a bit different, as we’ve taken notice of the many great ideas that you have. We are sure that NANR has great potential to benefit the professional and personal development of its members. Let’s bring these two together in a Plan Your Own Event game. The rules are simple:

  • Form your group during the event
  • Think of an event you would like to host: it can be any thing – dream big! 
  • Plan the event
  • Present your idea to the whole group

The winners will be chosen by a jury. The prize is budgetary (50 000 RUB) and organizational support from NANR and Neso Russia to implement this event in 2017.
