We suffered a loss words are not enough to describe.
Professor Jacek Namieśnik, the Rector of Gdańsk University of Technology, died on the 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 are available here. A mourning at Gdańsk University of Technology was proclaimed, lasting until the day of the funeral. All the academic community members are asked to honor the memory of Professor Jacek Namieśnik and respect the mourning.
