ERSA Monthly E’news-March 2022
31 March 2022 – Nr 3
Dear members, dear colleagues,
I hope that you’re all well.
Spring time has just started and we remain concerned about the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine. At our level we wanted to bring our support to people, and particularly scientists, forced to leave their country to escape the current war. For this purpose, we have open a page «ERSA Solidarity» to post proposals of assistance.
With all the sections, we are working to prepare our respective 2022 events. The agenda looks very promising and we hope to be able to organise a maximum of onsite events, or mixed events as it is the case for our upcoming ERSA2022 Congress.
I wish you a good springtime!
With best wishes,
André Torre
ERSA President
