The meeting focused on the development of strategies for the future IENE. There were also progress reports from the planning of the IENE 2018 conference, ongoing projects and events supported by IENE etc. The secretariat reported that IENE has got one new member since the last SC meeting, so the network now has 406 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.
