We Bid Farewell to Suddenly Deceased Professor Jacek Namieśnik

We suffered a loss words are not enough to describe.

Professor Jacek Namieśnik, the Rector of Gdańsk University of Technology, died today (14th April 2019) in his home in Gdańsk, most likely of problems caused by a heart condition. He was 69 years old.

The passing of our rector is a profound shock to the entire GUT academic community, as well as a painful loss for the scientific environment of Tricity and the whole country.

The Professor always had a special place in his heart for Gdańsk University of Technology. He dedicated his entire scientific career to GUT, always thinking about its development in the first place. His efforts were aimed particularly at assuring a place for GUT among the most prestigious research universities.

In these deeply saddening moments we extend our condolences especially to the members of the family of Professor Jacek Namieśnik, as well as to his associates and alumni, for whom he was truly a guardian and a master.

Details regarding the funeral ceremony will be published as soon as they become available.
