I have the pleasure to inform that IFIA new director has been appointed in 2017 in order to collaborate with me in providing consultation for the creation of IFIA policies and represent IFIA in the events that I do not have the chance to attend.
Mr. Vladimir Petriasov, IFIA Representative in Russia and in the Russian House for International Scientific and Technological Cooperation is elected as IFIA director for a mandate of two years according to IFIA statutory regulations.
Meetings the criteria for directors presented and approved in IFIA Executive Committee meeting on 5 March 2016 in Istanbul, Mr. Petriasov actively attends IFIA events and meetings, posses knowledge in the field of invention and innovation, is aware of IFIA working procedure, has strong networks due to his travels to various member states of IFIA and the experience shows that he owns the expected responsibility toward the works handed to him.
I hope new windows could be opened for IFIA and further opportunities would be provided to the community of inventors thanks to the appointment of a new director.
