Newly elected positions are: Prof. Wolter Paans as Vice-President, Dr. Fabio d’Agostino as Secretary, and the board members Claudia Leoni-Scheiber and Sergio Barrientos Trigo. Meet the board.

It’s my honor to forward warm greetings from Dr. Fintan Sheerin (former President), Dr. Ulla-Mari Kinnunen (former Vice-President), and Dr. Jan Florin (former ACENDIO Secretary). See the Laudatio’s for the leaving board (link to video).

Many thanks to those of you who participated at the 12th ACENDIO Conference from March 28th-30st at Dalarna University in Falun, Sweden.
Thanks for your contributions, for sharing your expertise and vivid in-depth discussions. We really enjoyed great learning experiences.
