Season's Greetings from EFORT


Season’s Greetings and warm wishes for the coming year!

Prof. Dr. Li Felländer-Tsai, EFORT President 2021/2022

Prof. Dr. Rob Nelissen, EFORT Secretary General


At the start of this year, when we started celebrating 30 years of EFORT, we knew little about how special the next 12 months would turn out to be…

Looking back, we see that EFORT worked hard to overcome disruption and embrace new ways of working. As we always said “The pandemic has taught us how to adapt and make our organisation agile.”

May we thank our members & respective networks, national Delegates, Committees & Faculty, corporate partners and providers for all the support in making 2021 a springboard to find the right balance between the use of technologies for new projects and the bet for a sense of new normality to re-connect in person next year.
