European Regional Focal Point for Animal Genetic Resources

Regional platform for the support of management, conservation and sustainable use of animal genetic resources

Thank you Sipke !

Sipke Hiemstra (The Netherlands) chaired the ERFP Steering Committee for two mandates, and worked  successively with two different secretariats, Slovenia (cf. featured image) and France under his presidency. He was also one of the major player for the big GenResBridge adventure.
Since last virtual General Assembly did not give us the opportunity to thank Sipke in a proper manner, the launch of the Genetic Resources Strategy in Brussels became the right place to reward Sipke. Our new chair, Montserrat Castellanos (Spain), and the secretariat were happy to offer him a cycling jacket flocked with the ERFP colours!
Thank you again Sipke for all the great work on behalf of ERFP!
