31 Oct 2016 Brussels - On behalf of PRACE, Prof. Dr. Anwar Osseyran, director of SURFsara and Chair of the PRACE Council has welcomed Serge Bogaerts (MSc) as the new Managing Director of PRACE aisbl. Serge Bogaerts will support the transition to PRACE 2 in his new full-time role. As Secretary of the PRACE Council he already gathered extensive knowledge of PRACE.

Serge Bogaerts was officially appointed as Managing Director of PRACE aisbl on 28 October 2016 during a meeting of the PRACE Board of Directors (BoD). Serge Bogaerts currently holds the function of PRACE Council Secretary and Delegate for Belgium within the scope of his position as HPC & Infrastructure manager at Cenaero, Belgium. Serge Bogaerts will start his work at the Brussels office of PRACE early 2017.

"Serge has the right management and technical expertise we need in this important phase of PRACE. I am happy that Serge will be devoting his time fully to the leadership of the BoD. I would also like to thank his predecessor, Alison Kennedy of the STFC Hartree Centre, for her dedication and support to date and look forward to a fruitful and pleasant collaboration with Serge in the near future", stated Anwar Osseyran, PRACE Council Chair.

"PRACE is currently in a transition phase to a new funding and governance model. This phase is a stepping stone towards a persistent and sustainable PRACE Research Infrastructure, and I am very much looking forward to being deeply involved in the implementation of this new phase as well as in the further development of PRACE in supporting European excellence in Science and Innovation", stated Serge Bogaerts.
