In the last ceremonial session of the Academy Anton Zeilinger conducted as president, he thinks back on his motivations for giving service to the Academy and Austria. "I took office in 2013. There is much I owe to the Austrian science system. I simply wanted to give back some of what I received. I hope I have succeeded a little here and there. I would like to thank everyone who has accompanied me on this journey. Now it's back to physics full time!"
The former science minister, geographer Heinz Faßmann, takes office today, on 1st July 2022. Congratulations and best wishes to the new leading team also from the people at IQOQI-Vienna.
