Dear Members of ERSA, dear Colleagues,

 

2020 has been a challenging year unlike any other for all.

 

 

I have been impressed by our community’s ability to adapt, pivot and move forward. And I am very proud of the many interesting initiatives made and events organized by ERSA Sections around Europe.

 

For the ERSA Board and Office, these unprecedented times have forced our team to be inventive, grasp new opportunities, and implement new digital solutions, changing our onsite events model into a virtual experience, and building new competencies. We believe that we have been able to keep the connection and respond to our community’s needs.

 

The pandemic is unfortunately not over, and we are conscious that there are still efforts to make in 2021. The already rich online Event agenda for the coming months, confirms our community’s intent to continue grasping every opportunity to advance research projects, meet, and exchange. Yet, I hope we will have the chance to meet you again in person as soon as possible and at the 60th ERSA Congress in Bolzano next August!

 

With best wishes. Stay safe and healthy!

 

André Torre

ERSA President
