In May we invited you to nominate names for the SPARC Europe Board. To remind you of that communication, see here.

At present, the SPARC Europe Board consists of 9 members representing Northern, Western, Eastern and Southern Europe. It is our two Nordic members whose terms come to an end. One Board Member is not able to renew due to already having run twice, and our other Nordic Board member originally intended to renew her term, who will now not be able to due to a change in position.

This means that we are now seeking a Nordic representative, and a member from the UK on our Board to tackle the challenges of the new status in Europe after Brexit.
We are also keen to have a strong Open Science (open/FAIR research data) advocate.

SPARC Europe has received the following three eligible nominees for the SPARC Europe Board election in 2019.
