Last year, in time for the 67th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting, we launched the Lindau Alumni Network. The Lindau Alumni Network is the exclusive online community for alumni of the Lindau Nobel Laureate Meetings. A digital space to keep the “Lindau Spirit” alive. Now, after a year of interactions and more than 1000 active users, we would like to announce the launch of the updated and redesigned Lindau Alumni Network!
You can access your personal settings by clicking on the profile image in the top right corner.
The Lindau Alumni Network still has all the core features, some were considerably expanded. Here are some of the improved features:
Search the alumni directory for fellow scientists: A world map gives you a quick overview of Lindau Alumni near you. Use the search bar at the top of the page to quickly look up someone. You can also use search operators including name, home institution, home country, alma mater, work group, year of the attended meeting and more. As the Lindau Alumni Network grows, so will the search directory.
Expanded personal profile: A personal profile page is created for every alumnus or alumna based on their submitted data from the application process. Every Lindau Alumni Network user has control over the information that is shared, and can add details, e.g. research interests or personal background. You can customise your profile by selecting a header image and profile picture. As a new feature, you can now add information to their profile by importing their LinkedIn or Xing profile. You’re also able to log in using your account at these sites.
Exchange ideas: The Lindau Alumni Network offers a number of ways to exchange ideas, plans and anecdotes with others. The Activity Stream offers a timeline similar to that of popular social networks, with options to easily share interesting links, fascinating videos and evocative images. A news section will include exclusive blog articles and interviews with Lindau Alumni. The trips feature on the activity feed lets you easily inform others about your upcoming travel, making informal meet ups easier to organise.
Organise with other alumni: You can create or join groups and this way organise with fellow alumni around shared interests and experiences. Groups administered by the communications team in Lindau are a unique way to stay up-to-date with all things revolving around the Lindau Meetings.
Peruse the job and calls board: The Lindau Alumni Network includes a job and calls board that soon will be updated with select, high quality job offers and calls for papers and nominations to conferences.
Use the Lindau Alumni Network app: The updated Lindau Alumni Network is also available as an app on both Android and iOS devices. The apps will be available for download in the next few days, in time for #LINO18.
