Discussing his plans as President-Elect, Borghesi mentioned, “the importance for EAERE to work closely with its members, in particular young researchers and PhDs, and intensify its effort to engage with policy makers, stakeholders as well as other national and European scientific associations. This, in turn, would increase the visibility and outreach of the association”.
