On Thursday, 29 November 2018 Achim Braun, Field Officer and liaison person for languages at the EU representation in Vienna, visited the ECML to say good-bye after 6 years of excellent cooperation with the ECML. Achim Braun returns to the European Commission in Brussels. His successor, Claudia Kropf, also used this occasion to familiarize herself with the work of the ECML and introduce herself to ECML staff. She emphasised that she will continue to foster good cooperation with the ECML, in particular with regard to the activities organized on the occasion of the European Day of Languages taking place every year on 26 September. ECML staff thanked Achim Braun for his open-minded approach to cooperation, wished him a good start in Brussels and welcomed Ms. Kropf as a new partner representing the EU in Vienna.
