EuroScience is saddened by the death of André Mischke, member of the Editorial Board of EuroScientist and first President of the Young Academy of Europe.

EuroScience learned with great sadness that André Mischke has passed away.

André was a very good scientist, but also very much concerned with the role scientists should play in society. He was the first President of the Young Academy of Europe. We have discussed with him how the collaboration between the Young Academy and EuroScience could develop, and this has worked out well. He was also an active member of the Editorial Board of our webmagazine EuroScientist. We send our condolences and wishes of strength to his family.

EuroScience will remember his contributions to science in Europe.
