We mourn for Dr. rer. nat. Hartmut Jürgens


The employees of Fraunhofer MEVIS mourn for Hartmut Jürgens who died at the age of 62 years after a serious illness on Saturday, September 23, 2017.

Hartmut Jürgens was one of the pioneers of our institute. Together with Heinz-Otto Peitgen und Carl Evertsz, he founded in 1995 the research institute MeVis at the University of Bremen, the forerunner of today’s Fraunhofer MEVIS. Hartmut Jürgens played a major role in the successful development of the institute and contributed decisively to the software platform MeVisLab.

We will remember Hartmut Jürgens as a dear friend and colleague and as a wise man. Our sympathy goes to his family.
