Norec Network

Of former exchange participants

The Norec Network is a place to share experiences and develop new ideas, making it a network for the future.

More than 12,000 people have participated in exchanges through Norec since 1963. Just imagine how much you can all learn from each other!

About the Network

Since 1963 Norec has enabled 12,000 people to participate in exchange programs worldwide. Through these exchanges, they have shared knowledge and made the world a better place.

The idea for the network came about when we asked ourselves:

How can we make further use of the knowledge our former participants have?

The simple answer to that is – let’s create a network where they can meet, stay in touch and continue sharing knowledge across borders.

The network was launched in Nairobi, Kenya, in May 2023. By June 2024, 1,700 former participants have joined and the number of members keeps growing day by day.

By joining the network, you will have access to:

  • Webinars
  • Online courses
  • LinkedIn group
  • Monthly newsletters
  • In-person and online gatherings

People of Norec Network

The Norec Network has members from all over the world, with diverse backgrounds and experiences. Through «People of Norec Network» we wish to share some of their stories.

This is an opportunity for you to get to know more about our members. Where do they live today? What do they do for a living? What knowledge do they have that might be useful for you?

Activity-based grant

During their exchange, participants often come up with innovative ideas, so Norec is launching a trial project for an activity-based grant. With this grant, Norec aims to help turn some of these ideas into reality.

The trial project will start autumn 2024.

Online courses

Here you will find a range of online courses specifically developed for the Norec Network.
