Dear Berrie,

As not a political person - afterall I research neurofeedback, hypnosis and 
energy medicine at Imperial College London, which is ranked 3rd in the UK (with 
all that that entails) - just what would a political agenda be? 

Our aims, and how they differ form i-SNR have been fully outlined.  These 
issues have evolved during and since Winterthur and hence the Referendum.

In order to have university affiliation there needs to be an academic on the 
faculty that is engaged in biofeedback research.  We have few options here.  
Tubingen and Imperial College London have been discussed but are not feasible. 
Trondheim offers strong interest with a new programme, and with Juri Kropotov 
on the faculty. From my personal standpoint and one on the teaching faculty of 
the training course, a city with an opera house would have been hard to refuse!

With best wishes,

Dear collegues,

being new in this field I 'am very surprised to read all these comments on
European independence, etcetera.
As far as I know the vote in Winterthür concerned the following point: "Does
the EU-Board have permission to investigate possibillities of letting become
the EU-chapter an independent organisation, IF (I repeat: IF) the iSNR isn't
prepared to give more money to the EU-chapter (because at the time the EU
chapter didn't have enough means to function properly).

Either I missed a piece of the process (negotiating with the iSNR) or the
Board skipped a piece, or I got wrong the reason for voting.

I would say, like Dr. Congedo and like more clinical oriented collegues: go
back to negotiate with iSNR and try to implement the European ideas. There
is strength in numbers.

Secondly: it seems that Trontheim is going to be the place where a future
University degree in QEEG and NT can be obtained. This strikes me. Why not a
more central place like Zürich, München, Prague, Paris, etcetera?

But mainly my question is: what are the political agenda's behind all these

Met vriendelijke groet/All the best/Ciao,
