On the eve of a long-awaited summer break, this 28th RITM newsletter is the last of the year. It provides three pieces of news to share.

First, Nathalie Guichard, Professor of Marketing at RITM Université Paris-Saclay, has been elected President of POLÉTHIS, the Council for Research Ethics and Scientific Integrity of the University of Paris-Saclay. This is a major responsibility, and we are particularly proud that Nathalie has taken up this challenge.

Second, we will soon welcome Marie-Eve Laporte, who has been recruited as a Junior Professor at RITM (CPJ). Marie-Eve Laporte is currently an Associate Professor at Université Paris 1 – IAE de Paris, and she will join the RITM to reinforce its interdisciplinary Health Team! See our newsletter to learn more about her research.

The third piece of news is both happy and sad, as we face two departures. First, José de Sousa, Professor of Economics for twelve years at the Université Paris-Saclay and former Director of RITM, will join the Université Paris 2 from the start of the academic year 2023-2024, to pursue his brilliant academic career. We gratefully thank José for contributing so much to our RITM community, and we wish him all the best in his new position! Last but not least, Marielle Rosine, our administrative assistant for nine years, will move to the Reunion Island with her family. We also thank her most sincerely for all the work accomplished alongside us. José, Marielle, you will be sorely missed… Come back whenever you like!

This newsletter is also an opportunity to highlight the latest academic achievements of the RITM community. You will learn more about our latest publications, participation in conferences, PhD thesis/HDR jurys, scientific valorization, and organization of scientific events. Enjoy this newsletter reading and the summer break!
