Last week we said goodbye to Olga Zotova, our Alumni Officer, who has been so important in setting up the NANR-network.

Olga was there when the official launch took place with Dutch prime-minister Rutte in 2011 and has been involved in numerous alumni events then. Last Friday, when the Director-General of Nuffic Mr. Freddy Weima was in Moscow, we had a chance to thank her for all her work! Our new Alumni Officer will be Elena Agafonova, who already has considerable experience in our office, working as Student Counsellor and herself an alumna also. We wish her good luck in the new job!
