Summary Report from the NKS Board Meeting in Helsinki, January 22, 2020

 

Change of Programme Manager for the NKS-R Programme

NKS expressed its sincere thanks to Christian Linde for all his work, enthusiasm and cooperation as the NKS-R Programme Manager over the last 3 years and NKS would like to wish Christian good luck and every success in his career in the years ahead.

NKS warmly welcomes Ari-Pekka Leppänen from STUK, Finland as the new NKS-R Programme Manager. Ari has a long background at STUK, but has in 2016-19 worked for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO). He holds a PhD degree in experimental nuclear physics from the University of Jyväskylä, Finland.  For all issues concerning the NKS-R programme please contact Ari at ari.leppanen@stuk.fi  or +358 40-7641788.
