The Vietsch Foundation was created during 2014 in memory of Karel Vietsch, former Secretary General of the Trans-European Research and Education Networking Association. (TERENA).
Each year the Vietsch Foundation will award a Medal of Honour to individuals who have contributed to the development of a service, technology or approach that will be of enduring value to the community.
Suggestions for people who should be awarded the 2017 Medal of Honour are very welcome. Nominations, including details of what has been achieved and why the achievement is of outstanding value to the research and education community, should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 24 February, 17:00 CET.
The trustees aim to award next year’s Vietsch Foundation medal of honour at the TNC17 networking conference to be held in Linz, Austria between 29 May - 2 June 2017.
