IAU General Secretary 1997–2000

  • Johannes Andersen (a1)

Abstract

The IAU is like an old house: Each of the IAU General Secretaries brings her/his individual skills, trying to fix it up. After the collective efforts of several General Secretaries, the house is hopefully kept in reasonable overall shape. But each General Secretary is also in principle responsible for everything, which means that priorities for the way you spend your time must be set – remembering that surprises may occur at any moment.

In my case, I’d like to single out five major initiatives taken during my term, which have probably proved useful in the longer term.
