Summary of the General Assembly

The General Assembly took place on March 19, 2002, 20:30 at the Hotel Rauriser (Salzburg, Österreich) during the Quantsol 2002 workshop.
After opening of the General Assembly by our Vice President, Prof. Gion Calzaferri, (Our President Tjeerd Schaafsma was unfortunately unable to attend the General Assembly), a short review over the activities in the past year was given by Christian Königstein. In March 2001 a very successful 13 th Workshop on Quantum Solar Energy Conversion "QUANTSOL 2001" was held in Kirchberg in Tirol, Österreich. The Workshop with about 45 participants was organized by Prof. Serdar Sariciftci. The on-line proceedings are available on this home-page.
The 2nd European Summer school on Solar Energy was organized by Mary Archer in Schottland (U.K.) in 2001. It was a great success.

Afterwards, a short overview over future activities was given:
The 13th Winterworkshop will be organized by Christian Königstein.
After the activities overview, Christian Königstein (who replaced Hubert Cachet) presented the financial situation which is still healthy. Then, according to our statutes, the present Executive Board was released.
