IRRI Alumni Email

IRRI's Information Technology Services dept. has outsourced to Google the job of providing personal email accounts and addresses to all alumni, as well as to all current staff, scholars and board members, indeed to all members of the IRRI community.

Our first aim is to enable former colleagues to stay in touch easily and our second is disaster mitigation for the institute, by having a backup email system available to all current and new staff.

Just register here with and you'll never have to track the email addresses of fomer colleagues, nor will they: all members will be included in a directory with as much or as little information as they wish to share. Account details will be emailed to you. We'd like to register all IRRI alumni who use email and who would like to be included--in time for

IRRI's 50th Anniversary

in 2010. You can track our progress, and check for Alumni news.
