The Photonics21 Board of Stakeholder consists of 100 members (max). Due to the fact that 7 people stepped down from the BoS and 15 BoS members reached the end of their election period of 4 years (either due to §5 (8) Terms of Reference or due to the transitional rules of rotation § 11 Terms of Reference – Drawing Lots Process) the number of seats which are available for election are 22 in total.
The Photonics21 Executive Board decided on the election process and timetable and scheduled the election on the 5th November 2019 which is the final day of the 14-days online voting period starting on October 22nd 2019.
