On September 22nd, 2020 the BIPAVER general assembly took place purely virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The BIPAVER members decided to establish BIPAVER as a European Economic Interest Grouping (EEIG). EEIG is designed to minimize the legal, fiscal and psychological difficulties that natural persons, companies, firms and other bodies face in cooperating across borders.
The purpose of the grouping is to facilitate or develop the economic activities of its members by a pooling of resources, activities or skills. This is intended to produce better results than the members acting alone.
In the context of the new foundation of the EEIG the new BIPAVER board was elected. It consists of the President Jukka Lankolainen (ARL, Finland) and the Vice-President Guido Gambassi of AIRP (Italy). It is planned that Guido Gambassi will replace Jukka Lankolainen as President in two years.
