IN MEMORIAM

We are deeply saddened by the sudden passing of our colleague and dear friend Prof. Ivica Crnkovic, Vice-Chair of GATE’s Executive Board.

Throughout his distinguished career, Ivica was a role model, who contributed to the highest-quality science and empowered others to do so as well.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this difficult time.
