We were deeply saddened to receive the news last week that our friend and colleague Prof. Dr. habil. Tomasz ZawiŇāa-NiedŇļwiecki passed away in Warsaw at the age of 69.

Between 2002 and 2007, he made a significant contribution to establishing the first international Master's degree programme in Forest Information Technology (FIT) at our university in cooperation with the Warsaw University of Natural Sciences; from 2005 as deputy director. During this time, he lived with his family, his wife Anna and their children Zofia and Witold, in the center of Eberswalde. Eberswalde companions and friends as well as international guest lecturers and students fondly remember his cheerful summer parties in the garden of the Sonnenvilla and his fine sense of humor.
