The new ERScharter: 7 months on

Wow, that was a productive 7 months! A revamped website with a fresh look and feel, a range of workshops and online conferences successfully completed, and an online community that’s now bigger and stronger than ever. That’s the success story of the new ERSCharter in our first 7 months of life.

So it’s been a strong start to our journey but there’s still so much more to come. We’d be delighted if you could join us for the ride, so be sure to check out our social media channels and stay tuned to to find out what’s around the corner. Let’s continue down this road, safely, together!
