IAERE wishes them much success in their mandates and thanks Francesco Bosello, Shouro Dasgupta and Francesco Vona for having accepted to run as candidates in this election turn.

IAERE Secretary General

As of the Udine Conference, our Association has a new Secretary General: Martina Gambaro.
Due to an internal reorganisation of the work at CMCC where our Secretariat is based, Martina took over from Monica Eberle.
Martina has been working for our association for over three years now, together with Monica, which makes the transition very smooth.
We welcome Martina and wish her much success in this new position.
At the same time, we thank Monica for the excellent work she has done and for the outstanding role she has played during all these years for the success and the growth of our Association.
She will continue to support IAERE with different responsibilities.
