Meeting Minds

For over ten years now, our European alumni weekends have been hugely popular; opening in Berlin in 2009 we’ve held events in Paris, Madrid, Vienna, and Rome.

This year, we’re expanding Meeting Minds to three major cities across Europe from 19-21 March, to allow many more of you to attend.

We’ll be hosting events in Barcelona, Stockholm and Berlin. Whether you can join us for the whole day in Berlin or our programmes in Barcelona and Stockholm, you’ll have the opportunity to hear exclusive academic insights into the latest research across a wide range of relevant disciplines, from science and technology, the medical sciences, humanities and the social sciences. Alongside all of these academic programmes our alumni groups will be hosting drinks receptions where you can meet and mingle with fellow alumni.

Can't join us this time? Sign up to our events mailing list for all future events via your Oxford Alumni Online account here. If you don't have an account, you can register for one today with your alumni number (8-********).
