Francealumni.fr launched by Laurent Fabius - new social network for former foreign students in France (26 Nov) [fr]
At the Quai d’Orsay, Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, together with Geneviève Fioraso, Minister of Higher Education and Research, launched the social network francealumni.fr for former foreign students who have studied in France. They were joined by Mohamed Salah ben Ammar, the current Tunisian health minister; Jennifer Flay, director of FIAC [international contemporary art fair]; and John Parkes, managing director of Ubisoft France.
Each year, nearly 300,000 foreign students pursue their studies in France. francealumni.fr, established and operated by CampusFrance, aims at helping them remain in touch with our country after their studies.
This new site is also an opportunity for the international development of our businesses and universities, to facilitate new economic and academic partnerships with these former students.
The results of the first CampusFrance/B.V.A. survey on the economic impact of foreign students in France were also presented at this event.
