College of Europe E-newsletter

Dear Colleagues,
Dear Students,
Dear Members of the Personnel,
Dear College of Europe Alumni,
Dear College of Europe Friends,

It is with great pleasure that I should like to announce that the College of Europe News will, from now on, be published in electronic form. This allows us to publish it more on a more frequent basis, and to make information accessible to a wider audience. The new format also allows for more lively/interactive content. We hope that this initiative will contribute in particular to tighten ties between the College of Europe on the one hand, and its alumni and friends, wherever they are in Europe and in the world, on the other.  Don't hesitate to pass on your reactions and suggestions concerning the content of this E-newsletter.

I present to you all the very best wishes from the College of Europe.

Paul Demaret
