Association Structure

eco Presidency Committee

At the 2018 AGM, the establishment of the eco Presidency Committee was agreed upon, with the aim of assisting the eco Board and senior management in a consultative manner. The intention is to enable high-level representatives from industry, research, the media and politics to provide valuable stimulus with their expertise, helping the association to identify on-trend digital topics more rapidly and to more broadly apprehend their impact. The goal is also to extend the Internet industry perspective by integrating multiple points of view and lines of thought from other fields. In addition, the committee is intended to enable the promotion of an interdisciplinary exchange of views and experiences on the opportunities and challenges of digital transformation.

Since 2017, Prof. Michael Rotert, who was previously Chair of the Board for 17 years, has been the eco Honorary President. In 2022, the eco Presidency Committee comprised of:

Prof. Dr. Anja Feldmann
Director of the Max Planck Institute for Computer Science
