The new management board has been officially appointed

Jesus Giraldo and Carlos Barcia were officially appointed director and vicedirector of the Institute by University rector, Margarita Arboix, last April the 20th.

Due to the ending of the management board term, an extraordinary meeting of the Institute Council was held last April 3rd. In this meeting of the Council, Jesús Giraldo was elected as the new Institute director, by majority of votes in favour. Jesús presented his management board, which includes; Carlos Barcia, as the vice director, José Ramón Bayascas, Miguel Chillón, and Albert Quintana. Elisenda Sanz, as the seminars coordinator, and Beatriz Almolda, as the student activities coordinator, will complete the team. The new management board will come into office when the director is officially appointed by the University Rector.

We would like to thank the former management board for their effort and dedication.
