At an in-person session today in Amsterdam, the GÉANT Association general assembly elected new members to its Board of Directors.
Gilles Massen, Director of the Restena Foundation (NREN of Luxembourg) was elected chairman of the GÉANT Association board of directors for a period of three years. Heidi Fraser-Krauss (CEO of UK NREN Jisc) and George Konnis (Director of Cyprus NREN CYNET) were elected members of the Board of Directors, also for a period of three years.
NORDUnet highly appreciate that Gilles, Heidi and George have offered their candidacies and made themselves available, and look forward to the new Board of Directors guiding GÉANT through the years ahead. These will be years offering both exciting opportunities and new geopolitical and economic challenges for Europe and European research.
Similarly, NORDUnet would like to thank the outgoing board members: chair Andreas Dudler (SWITCH) and Kristina Lillemets (EEnet/University of Tartu) for their contributions to the community over the past years. GÉANT Association has seen tremendous progress towards a trust-based collaboration, able to jointly respond to fast changes in European research and the e-Infrastructures landscape.
Janos Mohacsi (KIFU), Ana Tavares Pinto (FCCN), Floor Jas (SURF), Federico Ruggieri (GARR), Paul Feldman (independent), and Lars Fischer (NORDUnet) round out the GÉANT Association board of directors.
