The SC mainly discussed the preparations for the upcoming conference in Lyon, e.g. prepared the agenda and presentations for the General Assembly and how to proceed with the IENE Declaration of the conference. The winners of the IENE Awards were also chosen. The secretariat reported that IENE has got 2 new members since the last SC meeting (from China and France).
*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.
