Best Wishes for 2021 from EAA board

On behalf of all the EAA board and on my behalf, I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and all the best for the New year.

2020 was a very “special year” but finally we were able to run Forum Acusticum online with more than a thousand participants thank to the continuous effort and the perseverance of all the organising team.

At this occasion, the EAA awards were given “virtually to the following recipients:

  • Eddy Gerretsen: Life-time achievements in acoustics for his contribution to Building Acoustics, (TNO,  Eindhoven University of Technology)
  • Murray Campbel: Life-time achievements in acoustics for his contribution to Musical Acoustics (University of Edinburgh)
  • HEAD-Genuit-Foundation: Contributions to the promotion of acoustics in Europe (Represented by Klaus Genuit)

 

Several challenges are now to be faced for 2021, among them (and according to the recent General Assembly decisions):

 

In 2021, the EAA will count one more Member Country, the Republic of Ireland. AACI will join the EAA as an associate Member.

 

Let’s remain positive and  hope that  the sanitary situation will improve and that we will be able to meet “for real” in one of our future Conferences:

EURONOISE 2021 and Ancient theatres 2021

 

Best wishes

 

Prof. Manell ZAKHARIA

President of the European Acoustics Association
