As countries struggle to contain the spread of the coronavirus, many national and international scientific, economic, cultural, and sporting events have had to be cancelled or delayed.

As we all know time flies, and indeed we arrive at the final year of the second term of Presidency of our Norwegian colleague Anthony Wagstaff, who did a great job, especially with the link of our ECAM to our AsMA friends in Oslo and Prague, and now also to our friends of the Academy for Paris in September 2020!
