1 Farewell from the outgoing director

From the IFRF Office
Contributed by Tomasz Klajny - IFRF Director
Livorno, Monday 6th July 2015

TJ bw pic_small.jpgAs my term as an IFRF executive director is coming to an end, I’d like to thank all of the Livorno team, our representatives and all of you for the trust and support given me during this time.

However, as always the change also brings new opportunities. Therefore, I would like to wish  the incoming Director – Neil Fricker – every success with relocating the foundation and  for a smooth continuation of all the IFRF operations and services.

I hope to find an employment in industrial combustion field and I look forward to continuing my service to the combustion community and my association with IFRF.
