Its been great working with you over the last couple of years in ELIXIR
and EOSC-Life. I look forward to continuing to work with Alex in ELIXIR
and to welcome Harald to EOSC-Life.
All the best in the new projects - hope to see you soon!

>In ELIXIR I was the representative of the German Cloud "de.NBI Cloud"

>At the beginning I mentioned the relocation of my tasks. I will

>and I will also again participate in industrial projects, as I did
>before my time at the German Cancer Research Institute and the Charité.
>I am very pleased to have had the opportunity to work with you in this

>these major European projects can be implemented for the benefit of all
>project partners. I will certainly miss the flair of our inspiring and
>very active cooperation. Thank you very much for the many trusting and
