The importance of intellectual flow has been stressed since the start of CERE nearly four years ago . Visitors to CERE and CERE researchers visits to other research centers has frequently been reported in our newsletters and the flow of people strengthens research. Now we thought we would revisit former CERE members and see what they are up to now. In this article, meet Sevil Acar.
