15-17 September 2023 - CIFE International Alumni Meeting in Berlin  

This time many Alumni dressed in style to take part in our CIFE Alumni Meeting 2023 which took place under a special motto this year, “The Roaring Twenties”! The weekend started with an opening reception at the Ballhaus Berlin an opportunity to meet old and new faces of the CIFE Alumni family. Our guests were greeted by Matthias Waechter, CIFE Director General, and Emre Gur, CIFE Alumni Director. Arne Krasting, author and expert of Berlin’s Roaring Twenties, gave an introduction to the eventful history of the Ballhaus. On Saturday, a bus equipped with monitors, took us on a trip back in time to the 1920s to discover places of everyday life, culture and politics and personalities such as Marlene Dietrich, Albert Einstein, Josephine Baker and other prominent figures of the 1920s, the most dazzling decade in Berlin’s history. Our traditional dinner took place in an exceptional setting: Hugo & Notte, a restaurant in the French Cathedral at Gendarmenmarkt. What better way to acknowledge our Franco-German background! We had the pleasure to welcome Marius Schlageter, Vice President of the German National Youth Council and Board Member at the European Movement Germany, for his keynote speech on the “State of the EU from a German Perspective”.
We thank all our guests from near and far for joining us in Berlin and we look forward to seeing you again in 2024, location to be announced soon!

Octobre 2016 - 21 octobre 2016 - 11th CIFE ALumni Brussels Networking Lunch

Discussion: Gianfranco Dell’Alba (DHEEI, 1978-79), Member of the European Economic and Social Committee, Director of the Delegation of Confindustria (main association representing manufacturing and service companies in Italy) to the EU and former MEP, presented a business view on Europe’s crisis. He observed that the EU is divided on each of the crisis (migration, attitude towards Russia, etc.) it has to face. There is a lack of solidarity between its member states. The EU is a weak union and certainly not a community. To avoid the risk that other referenda follow the one on the Brexit, business remains in favor of pro-European solutions. Dell’Alba said that the EU must strongly fight against deindustrialization of Europe as well as against any division of tasks between the industrial powers around the world. Europe must have its own industrial fabric.
