Dear Chris,

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!

Steven

>(https://www.bmwi.de/Redaktion/EN/Publikationen/Digitale-Welt/project-gaia-x.html),
