ECREA Executive Board is organizing regular meetings every two months to exchange ideas and approve reports by different sub-committees led by the members of the Executive Board.
During the last two meetings (a hybrid meeting held on November 18-19, 2021 in Prague, and an online meeting on 7 January) the members of the Bureau of the Executive Board have provided updates about the planning of the Aarhus 2022 conference; Pille Pruulmann-Vengerfeldt gave feedback about the outcomes of the Doctoral Summer School of 2021 and organization of the Summer School of 2022; and approved the report presented by Christina Holtz-Bacha of the 18th wave in the ECREA book series.
In addition to the previous initiatives led by the members of the executive board (e.g. ethics committee), several new sub-committees were launched on topics that are at the heart of the values of ECREA. For example, Zlatan Krajina is leading the work of the equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) sub-committee and Andreas Schuck is responsible for leading the subcommittee on minimising the environmental impact. In order to promote collaboration and to develop common actions between ECREA and Latin American Communication Researchers Association (ALAIC), a sub-committee was formed, led by Patricia Nunez Gomez.
The next meeting of the Executive Board will take place in March 11.
Andra Siibak, General Secretary
