After many well succeeded Alumni events held in Brazil, and due to increased number of Brazilian alumni who been to Sweden studying in Swedish universities, the Embassy of Sweden in Brazil together with the Swedish Institute decided to launch on November 29th 2018 (Thursday) the Sweden Alumni Network Brazil. The Brazilian Chapter will be responsible for organizing events in order to gather all Brazilian alumni who had been in Swedish universities so all alumni can socialize, network and have fun together.
The launching event will be held at Swedcham (Swedish-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce) in the city of São Paulo, and will be part of 7th Sweden-Brazil Innovation Weeks. At the launching we will have a lecture on ‘Swedish Innovations and their contributions to the Brazilian Model’ followed by a networking mingle.

All Brazilian alumni who have studied in Sweden are welcome to the event, free of charge!
