Speaking with David Groep, NIKHEF, member of the successful bidding team from Amsterdam:
“When I heard the decision I thought, 'Yes! We did it.' This will be a great opportunity for Amsterdam, hosting such an important international organization and we especially hope that the staff of EGI.org will benefit from our beautiful city.
I'm very grateful to the people who voted for Amsterdam, I know how hard the selection process was. There were other strong contenders which were also excellent options. Of course,” he says “I think Amsterdam was the best choice.”

“I hope the location in Amsterdam will help EGI be a great success. We'll do our best to ensure the success of EGI, to keep the users happy so that we get great science.”
