IFIP’s Presidents

IFIP, as an organization with a dynamic field of activity, needs to be "on the go" to be relevant and to be proactive and reactive to the external environment and to our members' expectations. This, however, does not necessitate the reinvention of the wheel as there are matters on which we can resort to the wisdom and experience of previous IFIP Officers. IFIP as part of modern society is based on the cumulative efforts of several generations and for this reason it is important to periodically look back and learn as we stride forward.

17 individuals have led our Federation during a period of 57 years. These are:
