We are happy to inform you that our partner, Centre International de Formation Europeenne (CIFE), with whom we organize the summer programme Romania-Bulgaria (cife.eu/fr/4/universite-d-ete-de-roumanie-bulgarie_21-1), has elected on 26 January 2018 its new president – Mr. Herman Van Rompuy, the former President of the European Council (http://www.cife.eu/en/8/News/new-president_222-2). Among the former presidents of this institution, we mention late Philippe Maystadt (former president of the European Investment Bank) and Jean-Claude Juncker (the president of the European Commission). In his inaugural speech the new president underlined that “[i]t is an honour for me to become President of CIFE, which for more than 60 years has been promoting the values of Europe, European integration and governance, multilingualism and student mobility through its European and international higher education programmes. I am pleased to contribute to the next stage in the development of this academic institution”. Good luck to carry out your new mandate, Mr. Van Rompuy! With this occasion, we evoke our hope to develop on more levels the partnership we have with your esteemed institution!
