In memory of Karel Vietsch 1952 – 2014

In memory of Karel Vietsch 1952 – 2014

It is with great sadness that we have received the news about the death of Karel Vietsch, TERENA Secretary General.

Karel Vietsch was a driving force in the collaborative effort between the European countries on the development of Research and Educational Networks.

Karel became TERENA Secretary General in 1996, and since then he has been a significant driving force to  the development of the European R&E community. Even when in 2012 serious illness  forced him to take leave from his daily job Karel continued to contribute to the community with his knowledge, understanding and visions for the future development of research networking.

With the death of Karel Vietsch the European NREN community has lost a knowing and dedicated member.

All honour to his name.
