Dear ESP members and friends,

We are happy to announce the upcoming launch of our new updated ESP website and to provide you with an overview of the latest developments within our Partnership.

New ESP website

We are happy to announce the launch of our new ESP website on 1 June 2016!

The new website comes with easy navigation, user-friendly interface, a brand new ESP member portal with many features for easy collaboration, improved personal profile and more!

ESP member portal

The new member portal will offer the opportunities to set up a personal profile, connect to fellow ESP-ers, join in discussions, share files, links or videos, work on joint documents, and more. It will serve as a helpful collaboration tool for the ESP working groups, regional chapters and national networks. Everyone can try out all the new features by using the free trial account option until 1 November.
