RSAI has a great pleasure to announce important decisions that have been made during the RSAI council meeting held virtually last November.

First, the Council elected Prof. Hans Westlund (KTH Stockholm) as President Elect of the RSAI. Congratulations!
Hans will become Vice President as of January 2022, and will work along Prof. Eduardo Haddad, current RSAI President, for the benefit of the Association.

Second, the Council also elected a new Editor-in-Chief of Papers in Regional Science, RSAI flagship Journal. After nine years of service, Prof. Roberta Capello (Politecnico di Milano) steps down, and Prof. Rosella Nicolini (Universidad Autonoma de Barcelona) begins a three years term as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal. To Roberta goes the Association’s gratitude. Over the past nine years, PiRS grew steadily in terms of quality of scientific output and impact as testified also by its Impact Factor. To Rosella, the Association’s best wishes to walk on these steps of excellence, and to further enhance the journal’s positioning in the field.

RSAI would also like to welcome Prof. Tomaz Dentinho (University of the Acores) as Councillor-At-Large of the RSAI. Tomaz was elected with an online ballot, that also involved other excellent candidates. This is another example of the active role played by RSAI members in the life of the Association.
