The meeting discussed the proposal of the possible development of IENE and the transfer of the secretariat and hosting organisation from Sweden to France in 2019. The newly started project with digitalisation of the COST 341 Handbook into a web format was also discussed, as well as the ongoing planning of the IENE 2018 conference. The secretariat reported that IENE has got two new members since the last SC meeting, so the network now has 408 members.
*In order to make the work of the Steering committee (SC) more transparent to all members, the SC has decided to regularly publish short summaries of their meetings on the website. IENE members are always free to contact the SC with requests, proposals, questions or issues for discussion.
