Election of the IEP President and his three Vice Presidents

At our European Summer Reception on 5 July 2018 at Europäisches Haus, the direction of the institute was handed over to our new managing directors in a ceremony. In addition to the handover to the two new directors Dr. Katrin Böttger and Dr. Funda Tekin, our Board of Trustees also elected the President of the IEP as well as its 3 Vice Presidents.

We are very happy that Dr. Werner Hoyer, President of the European Investment Bank in Luxem­bourg, was reaffirmed by our Board of Trustees on 5 July 2018 as IEP President. As Vice-Presi­dents, Elmar Brok, MEP, Honorary President of the European Union Germany and former Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament, and Axel Schäfer, MP, Deputy Chairman of the SPD Group in the German Bundestag, were reelected. At the same time, we are very happy that Prof. Sabine Saurugger, University of Sciences Po Grenoble, was elected as Vice-President for the first time. She takes over the third deputy chair from Prof. Dr. Rudolf Hrbek, University of Tübingen and Arbeit­skreis Europäische Integration (AEI), who accom­panied the IEP for many years as Vice-President. We would like to thank him sincerely for his dedication and enthu­siasm for our work.

We cordially thank all our curators for their numerous atten­dance and confi­dence in our work. We look forward to the further cooperation!
