Dear members, dear colleagues,

I hope that you're all well.

In a couple of weeks, the ERSA Summer School is back onsite at the EM Normandie Business School in Caen. The Local Organising Committee has prepared a very rich programme and is very excited to welcome and exchange around the topic of circular economy with young scientists from Europe and beyond. We wish them full success!

As for our Annual Congress #ERSA2022, we are moving forward with the programme schedule and shaping an attractive agenda for both online and onsite participants. We remind accepted authors willing to present in Pecs, to register by the end of June at the latest.

We also invite you to read more about this month's opportunities included in this enewsletter.

With best wishes,

André Torre

ERSA President
