Young Erasmus Circle

Network of ambitious young leaders (age < 35)

About us 

The ‘Young Erasmus Circle’ (previously the ‘Young Erasmus Trust’) is one of the circles within the Erasmus Alumni Club. We embrace the alumni club’s goals and contributes by connecting ambitious entrepreneurs, thinkers and doers. 

The Young Erasmus Circle was founded in 2012 to bridge the gap between the younger generation of alumni (<35 years) and the then Erasmus Trust Fund. Current members have been selected based on their ambition and active contributions to the university or the city of Rotterdam. 


The committee organises a number of activities to bolster the cohesion within the Young Erasmus Circle, as well as with members of the Erasmus Alumni Club. The motif of these activities is knowledge acquisition and going beyond one’s own limits. Of course all activities by the Erasmus Alumni Club itself can be entered too. Most of the activities are free, some require a small fee..
