Stefan will advise and support the Presidency and our Board in the lead up to, and for the duration of, the Swedish Presidency.

Sweden concludes the trio-presidency which was begun by France in the first half of 2022 and followed by the Czech Republic in the second half. Stefan’s appointment follows that of our recent Envoys, Vojtěch Petráček (Rector of Czech Technical University in Prague) and Christian Lerminiaux (President of ParisTech).
