We have left the CCER inaugural year behind us. Reflecting back on 2017 I am proud of what we jointly achieved.
Of course we had our well-attended and well-received official opening event in June. We also built an attractive website, started the CCER seminars, and connected with many stakeholders at DIFFER, TU/e and beyond. In the meantime numerous less visible efforts happened in the background. This resulted in new licenses, new HPC hardware, new CCER affiliates, and new funding for projects.
I thank all involved for your sustained efforts and commitment. The results achieved in 2017 place us in an excellent position for further growth. As a reminder of the bigger picture we are part of, I leave you with a graph (below) you might want to contemplate. Will we make the turn? How many dots before we reach the bottom-right corner?
I wish you a happy new year and I look forward to the next steps in our joint journey!
