In 2015 The Wiener – Anspach Foundation celebrated its fifty years of activity by organising two events, one at the Embassy of Belgium in London, the other at the Palais des Académies in Brussels. These two highly successful events allowed us to gather a great number of Alumnae and Alumni, who expressed the wish to reestablish ties among themselves and with the Foundation.

We have thus decided to set up an Alumni Network, with two aims:

  • Strengthen the ties among our Alumnae and Alumni by regularly organising specific activities or by involving them more in the preexisting activities of the Foundation. The principle guiding us will be by the Alumni, for the Alumni.
  • Put our young Alumnae and Alumni in touch with those who previously benefited from the Foundations’ support. Current fellows at the end of their grant period and people wishing to apply for a Wiener-Anspach fellowship can also reach out to the Alumni Network. If you would like to contact a former fellow of our Foundation, you can send a request to

The Alumni Network has a LinkedIn group, which we invite you to join.

We count on your contribution to ensure the development of this network. We would love to receive your comments and suggestions at

We look forward to hearing from you soon,
