As president of the ISSI (International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics) I highly welcome the esss initiative. The advantages and opportunities arising from collaboration and participation by members of several leading European institutes are manifold. Surely, students and workers in the field will benefit greatly, not only from the contents of the courses themselves but also by participating in a network of interested parties. I wish all involved a successful partnership.
