Dear ACENDIO members

With pleasure and pride we look back to the 13th ACENDIO Conference, which was held on March 19+20, 2021, along with the General Assembly. Having been re-elected as President with the best result is an honor, and your trust is supporting, thank you!

Today, I’m announcing the newest news which refer to ACENDIOs ongoing work:
On April 8, 2021, the first biennial, respectively the introductory board meeting took place to welcome Bente Christensen (Norway) and Mikko Härkönen (Finland) as new Board Members, and Claudia Leoni-Scheiber (Austria) was appointed as Vice-President. After this meeting Valentina Zeffiro (Italy) accepted being appointed to the remaining open board position. Congratulations and sincere thanks to all!
