Join the Alumni community!
International Alumni Chapters serve as centres of alumni activity and a link to the Hertie School, offering opportunities for socialising as well as networking and professional development. Each Chapter represents one metropolitan area. The chapter is led by one or ideally more alumni of the Hertie School.
The Chapter Leads of each Alumni Chapter are your main point of contact for organising networking events and contributing your own ideas for future activities. They contribute their free time to expand and strengthen the alumni community in Berlin and keep you professionally and personally connected both with each other and the Hertie School!
The fellows & friends programme is an overarching unit for the Hertie Foundation’s Alumni and stipendiary and supports them in developing new projects born of their own visions and ideas. The fellows & friends network also includes former students of the Hertie School.
- fellows & friends offers the following options for involvement:
- financial and organisational support for projects
- career coaching and executive seminars
- engagement in laboratories and collaboration in thematic networks
- public events that offer space for critical discourse
- networking meetings
Overall, the fellows & friends programme seeks to contribute to the improvement of the quality of public discourse as well as to the development of new solutions for the numerous challenges society faces in reference to the goals and activities of the Hertie Foundation.

Existing thematic networks
Thematic networks are platforms that bring together Hertie fellows with professional experience and/or interest in a certain field. Members may come from the public, private, academic or civil society sectors. These networks have the purpose of facilitating dialogue, knowledge-sharing and learning, to provide a trust-based environment for career path reflection, and to facilitate the development of lasting professional connections among outstanding individuals of diverse backgrounds, nationalities and ages who share a common interest and motivation for further professional development in a field.
The following thematic networks are currently active:
- Hertie Energy and Environment Network (HEEN)
- Hertie Network on Digitalization (HNoD)
- Central Eastern European Initiative (CEEI)
- Hertie Social Impact Collaborative
