Congratulations and good bye to our Assistant Director Gert-Jan Nabuurs,
who will leave us to start a new and exciting job as of 1 January 2013.
He will start in Wageningen (both at Alterra and at the University) as a
lead scientist on European forests; covering aspects such as natural
resources, climate change and environmental services. The idea is that
he will lead a theme ‘Wageningen-broad’, and it is to be combined with a
part-time professorship on European forests. Thank you Gert-Jan for
your significant input to EFI during the past 3,5 years! We look forward
to collaborating with you in the future and wish you all the best.
Happy retirement to Ilpo Tikkanen, Head of Programme for the Policy and Governance Unit. Ilpo has held the EFI flag high and contributed to many important activities, such as EFFE, FOPER and ThinkForest. He has also represented an international institute in pan-European forest policy processes and platforms, and made sure EFI has been recognized by key policy actors and institutions. Thank you Ilpo for everything, we’re really going to miss you! Hope you'll enjoy every minute of your retirement.
