Behind the scenes at FEMS

Dr Kaisa Haukka (FI-SBBF) participated in the preparation group for the Election Committee.

It was a very nice experience indeed. We wanted to address diversity in different positions in FEMS; of fields of microbiology, whether people work with academia or companies or research interests, age groups, gender. We started the work via email and we met once – it was a very nice meeting. Different ideas come and you develop them further and you end up with the best solution for everyone.”
