Alumni Contacts and Expertise Database

The Alumni Contacts and Expertise Database (CEDB) provides a service for alumni, current and potential students, as well as third parties, who are looking for expertise or contacts in a particular area of IP or region of the world.

The CEDB includes the fields of expertise, the countries of origin, the places of residence, and the contact details of almost 100 alumni who agreed to make their data publicly available. A similar database with more entries is available on the Alumni intranet.

To sort the information, please click on the blue column headers.
