On behalf of the Supervisory Board, we welcome you to read ERC’s first annual report on our activities. A year ago, the foundation was born and thanks to the involvement of so many great minds and their energy, we are, a year later, proud to share the achievements made so far and the ones to come. We are full of gratitude and thankful to everyone who has been involved in making this group a reality over the past year, and I hope to see this group continue to learn and grow even more in 2018 than we did in 2017. The challenge of turning degraded ecosystems back into functional wonders is driving all of us. And remember — this is only the beginning!
François De Keuleneer
Chair of the Supervisory Board
