The General Assembly had elected seven high-ranking international experts for the next term of office at its last meeting in Milan in November. Both the President Prof. Dr. Hans-Ulrich Heiss (Association of Informatics Departments and Research labs in Europe and neighbouring countries, Informatics Europe) and the Vice-President Dr. Iring Wasser (German Accreditation Agency for Degree Programmes in Engineering, Informatics, the Natural Sciences and Mathematics, ASIIN e.V.) were reelected. The other Board members are Prof. Hans-Ulrich Bühler (German Association of Faculties of Informatics at Universities of Applied. Sciences, FBTI/GAFIUS), Prof. Christine Choppy (French Society for Education and Research in Computer Science, SPECIF), Prof. Roland Ibbett (British Computer Society, BCS), Prof. Enrico Nardelli (Gruppo di Informatica – the Italian Association of University Professors of Computer Science, GRIN) and Prof. Eduardo Vendrell Vidal (Spanish National Conference of Deans and Directors for Universities’ Schools of Informatics, CODDII).

The term for the first Executive Board ended at the end of 2011. The Executive Board is appointed by the General Assembly, the highest decision-making body of EQANIE, for a period of three years. Members of the Executive Board may be re-elected once. The main tasks of the Board include the preparation and management of the working programme and activities of EQANIE e.V. and the management of membership issues.

At its final meeting in November, the old Executive Board had also appointed Janna Wessels as new Secretary General. The former Secretary General Frauke Muth left after four years of dedicated work for EQANIE, as she was expecting her second child. Janna Wessels holds degrees from Oxford, Lille and Münster and spent two years working for non-profit organisations in Latin America. Since 2011 she works for the German Accreditation Agency ASIIN where she now took charge of the European Quality Assurance Network for Informatics Education (EQANIE).
