Following the overall positive evaluation of HEiKA the Research Board and the Board of Directors decided on some major changes following the reviewers' recommendations.

The previous Research Bridge Nature, Technology and Society (NTS) will not be continued as before, but will undergo a fundamental adjustment becoming a new investigative Research Bridge - HEiKAexplore (see also below).
