I hope you’re well.

First, on behalf of the ERSAC, I would like to congratulate and welcome the New President of AISRe, Domenico Scalera, and his team. AISRe is one of the main pillars of ERSA, and the last Congress in Milano was a great and huge event.


The autumn is often a very rich and dynamic moment for us. Many events take place in this period, new calls for publications are published.


In this letter, we also offer you information about new publications, some recent videos of presentations by our peers, or  new opportunities for your career
