The Action Committee of the Young Minds Project is happy to congratulate Dr. Roberta Caruso, our former chair, with being elected a member of EPS Executive Committee!

Roberta’s EPS journey began in 2010 when she subscribed to the society as individual member to create the Naples YM section (now PONYS). Since then, she has worked to organize local and national events within the section, until November 2015, when she joined the YM Action Committee. At that point, Roberta decided to step back from the front row in the local section, and assist the new members from a certain distance. In May 2018, she became YM program chair and played this role until 2020.  Along with organization of joined sessions during conferences, Roberta worked towards strengthening the relations between YM and other EPS Divisions and Groups and paid great deal of attention to promoting networking between the sections and the Action committee. During her term the committee has also instituted a new grant program for student-organized conferences (YM Conference Award), and put the basis for a mentoring program for YM members. Right after the end of her term as YM chair, she joined the EPS Executive Committee, where Roberta plans to continue working with YM towards the implementation of the mentoring project and towards the engagement of the physics community in the International Year for Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development.

Congratulations, Roberta, on your well-deserved success and good luck with bringing all your initiatives to life!

The Action Committee is also proud to welcome its new members on board: Mattia Ostinato (Naples, Italy) and Carmen Martin (Valladolid, Spain). We are sure that your extensive experience in outreach activities of your sections and organization of large scientific events, your skills that you mastered being part of the YM Project and willingness to take responsibility will help you make great contributions to the Young Minds development.

FLTR: Roberta Caruso, Carmen Martin and Mattia Ostinato
