Update from IFRF Director
From the IFRF Office
Contributed by Tomasz Klajny – IFRF Director
Livorno, Monday 15th December 2014

The current 2014 year was very challenging for IFRF with many personal changes in the foundation. I took the position of IFRF Director with the beginning of this year. In May we had the next change, when Izabela Reszewicz took over the position of IFRF Communication Officer. During our Join Committee meeting in June in IJmuiden Leo Tognotti, from University of Pisa, was appointed as IFRF Superintendent of Research and Wiebren de Jong, from Delft University of Technology, was appointed as IFRF Deputy Superintendent of Research.
