Anna Szukalska from Krakow has managed the UNIGIS International Office for four years, coordinating meetings, communication and processes across all UNIGIS partner universities. In addition to managing external liaisons with industry partners and membership in associations, she assisted with marketing and 'kept the wheels spinning' when everyone else seemed to be busy with other tasks.
With the end of 2012 Anna will hand over her responsibilities at UNIGIS International to her successor, and focus on her work at UNIGIS Poland. We will miss her motivating spirit and sense of duty, leading our Association into many initiatives which were not feasible before. UNIGIS Chair Prof Josef Strobl expressed all network members' gratitude at the recent Krakow workshop, and thanked Anna for her contributions towards making UNIGIS the leading option for in-service professional continuing education in GIScience and Geoinformatics worldwide!
