On 1 June 2020, Thomas Pertsch has regularly resigned his position as the executive director of the Abbe Center of Photonics after one year. The ACP community wishes to thank Thomas, again, for his commitment and dedicated work as director during the last term.
According to the statute of the ACP, the executive director is annually elected by the board of directors. Now, with the unanimous election of Andreas Tünnermann, he will fill this position for one year, with Stefanie Gräfe being the new deputy director. Along with this election, all ACP directors confirmed that the center will continue to take its management decisions and responsibilities as a joint task with the respective duties and obligations shared by the whole board.
Furthermore, a new date for the annual ACP general assembly, which in April 2020 was canceled due to the SARS-CoV-2-related public restrictions, will be announced in short. The general assembly will be held in a hybrid way, i.e. both presence and online participation will be possible.
