Annual Review 2015
 
We would like to update you on our year in review publication for 2015, which is now available in five additional languages: français, español, deutsch, italiano and polski. We would like to thank our members and members of the ESN team who spent time proofreading the text, and also to thank those who contributed quotes for the report.

The ESN annual review gives you a snapshot of ESN's upcoming activities for 2016, as well as casting a look back on all of the activities that we were engaged in with our members and external parties, through working groups, our annual seminar, workshops, peer reviews and many more events.

In 2015 we had a record number of new members joining ESN, with 21 members overall joining our ranks. Please take a look at our members' map in the network section of the Annual Review 2015 (also available online) to pin-point their locations!

Please download your copy (search by language) and share it widely amongst your organisation and your membership base.
