New website for iGE3

The iGE3 website has been redesigned in an effort to better meet modern standards in terms of readability and compatibility with various devices. The contents are basically the same as in the previous version, but the directory of members is still missing. We did not forget it: the directory will be included in future developments, as well as an event calendar and other useful tools.

Although the standard http protocol is still fully functional, the secured https protocol should always be the preferred in the address of the website.

We wish you a pleasant visit !
