In order to guarantee the University Centers´ autonomy, it has been agreed that no member from the University of Navarra Governing Board are part of the Centers´ Advisory Committees. For this reason, Dr. Montuenga ceased to be an ECIP Advisory Committee member on 26th November 2010. We are very grateful to his collaboration during these years.
