After leading the EGI Foundation for over five years, our Managing Director Yannick Legré has announced his intention to leave by the end of this year. Yannick has made the EGI Federation into the smoothly operating e-infrastructure it is today, serving thousands of researchers in Europe and worldwide. He has turned the Amsterdam-based EGI Foundation into a stable organisation, employing over 20 people.
“There is a time for everything. There has been a time for building EGI and a time for structuring it. Now it’s time to step back and allow a new director to move EGI forward into the challenging future of the European Open Science Cloud and the consolidation it will require”, says Yannick.
The EGI Foundation is now looking for its new Director.
The primary objectives of the Director are to further develop and implement the future EGI Foundation strategy, in collaboration with the EGI Council and to prepare the grounds for a long-term sustainability of the EGI Federation. The context for the future strategy will be provided by the development of the European Open Science Cloud, in which a consolidation with other e-infrastructure providers is foreseen in order to better serve existing and new research communities in Europe.
