Due to the retirement of Prof. Johannes Buchmann, CROSSING Spokesperson from 2014 to 2019, all CROSSING members elected new Spokespersons and Directorate members at the annual CROSSING General Assembly that took place on September 10, 2019.

Prof. Marc Fischlin – Deputy Spokesperson since 2014 – was confirmed as the new Spokesperson. He was responsible for the Integrated Research Training Group (IRTG), which will be taken over by Prof. Christian Reuter, new member of the directorate. Deputy Spokesperson from now on is Prof. Sebastian Faust, who already acted as representative of the Project Area Solutions in the Directorate.

We thank Prof. Buchmann for his service as CROSSING Spokesperson and wish Prof. Fischlin all the best for his new position!
