New Director General for EC's DG Research

UKRO is reporting that Robert-Jan Smits has been appointed as teh new Director General for the EC's Directorate General for Research, which runs the Framework Programme. He moves from being Deputy Director-General at the Joint Research Centre. He will take over from José Manuel Silva Rodríguez on 1 July 2010.
Interesting that he was only at the JRC since Feb and appears to have leap frogged the previous incumbent of the Deputy Directorship of the JRC, Anneli Pauli, who moved on to become Deputy Director of DG Research. I'm sure it's all sweetness and light, but I imagine some nails are
privately being spat in the Pauli household...
