Let me wish you all my season’s greetings, and the best to come in 2022, both professionally and personally.


We have had another challenging year in 2021, and we are proud to have succeeded in making this year rich, delivering outstanding online events, highlighting and sharing the production of new researches and state-of-the-art findings of our big community of regional scientists across Europe and beyond.


We hope that many of us will be able to come to Pécs for the 61st edition of our Congress or will attend online. For the first time, the #ERSA2022 Congress is designed as a mix format event including online presentations, which will, for sure, bring added value to the meeting, allowing more talented researchers to be part of our international landmark event.


Don’t miss also the other events that we have prepared for you in 2022: Summer and Winter Schools, Webinars, publications… and many others, in collaboration with the national or linguistic associations. You won’t have time to get bored with ERSA for sure!


With best wishes,


André Torre

ERSA President
