About the Barcelona GSE Scientific Council

In memoriam: Hugo Sonnenschein (1940-2021), chair of the Scientific Council

The BSE community was deeply saddened this summer by the loss of Hugo Sonnenschein, who served as the Chair of our Scientific Council since its creation in 2008 until his passing in July 2021.

“Hugo’s work as Chair of the Scientific Council was superb, and his friendship and personality will always be remembered.”
Joaquín Almunia, honorary chair of the Barcelona GSE
