We continue to plan for our next biennial meeting in July, kindly organised by our colleagues in Brussels, and are in early-stage planning of our next event in 2024, please stay tuned and join us in Brussels to learn more about where and when this is going to take place. We have a packed agenda for 2022 in redeveloping and expanding the iEMSs website, organising further webinars and you will all receive quarterly updates in Newsletters, managed by our newly established Outreach Committee chaired by Chris Knightes. Furthermore, we are intending to establish a committees focusing on expanding our activities with and for early-career researchers (ECR’s) and reviewing and improving our society with regard to Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity. Last, but not least, we will have our next Biennial General Meeting (tentatively planned for June, ahead of our Brussels event, and held virtually to enable broad participation with elections to the Board and Office, as our Bylaws require.
