Welcome to this edition of the EuroExpert e-bulletin. EuroExpert started the second half of 2022 with a change in Presidency from the Czech Republic to Germany. Willi Schmidbauer, President of our member, Bundesverband öffentlich bestellter und vereidigter sowie qualifizierter Sachverständiger e.V. (BVS), took over in a challenging period. EuroExpert held its first in-person General Assembly since 2019 in Brussels and could look back on a very successful year including a positive outlook for 2022 and 2023.
We see that experts in Europe restart a variety of initiatives. We and our partners have started to deliver the first results in the Project Findex II, co-funded by the European Union. Participants from many European countries give positive input to the different working groups. Some first results are published in this e-bulletin. A contribution from Austria makes clear that this also includes the experts working for courts. We look back on the Expert Congress in Montpellier where we have learned that experts have to prepare for new ways of work and look forward to the German Expert Day on the 17th and 18th November in Berlin. As ever contributions for future editions are welcome.
Dr Matthias Rant, Chairman
