Jaap van Wiechen, directostaar HAL Investments, Stef Blok, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Floor Bremer, Renske Leijten.

The locations? Often interesting workplaces of alumni, such as Peace Palace, the ANWB head office, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and HAL Investments.

"The circle of former Groningers in The Hague meets in beautiful locations. The Gemeentemuseum was beautifully lit this time and we saw a beautiful exhibition before we sat around the tables together. It is nice to contribute to fundamental research that benefits the world, such as Professor Loi's solar cells. " S.G (Fieke) van der Lecq (Economics, 1991).
