Happy Birthday EUSEA – Sweet 17 Today!

By | April 4th, 2018|Categories: Inside EUSEA, Networks, Uncategorized|Tags: , , |

Peter Rebernik, the “Founding Father” and certainly the most important accelerator of our dynamic network, just highlighted a very important date in our association’s history: It was a spring day in Gothenborg on April 4, 2001, when the idea arose to form an association called “EUSCEA”. The formal registration was done later that year in Vienna, but this meeting can be called the “birth hour” of our organisation. This means that we can now celebrate our 17th birthday! As Peter states, “originally, we just wanted to submit a project of science events to the European Commission, but Mikkel (Bohm) and I had the idea to first form an association.” The main participants of this first meeting were, according to Peter: Joachim Lerch, Germany – he was the main inviter; Mikkel Bohm, Denmark; Magdalena Fikus, Poland; Janeke Voltman, Netherlands; Annika Lotzman-Dahl, Sweden – she was the host of the meeting, and Peter Rebernik, Austria. A big “Thank You” goes to all these “Founding Mothers and Fathers”, without whom we would not be such a swirling community, embracing more than 100 members all over Europe and beyond. Please enjoy some pictures of this first meeting, from Peter Rebernik’s archive: […]
