ICC mourns the death of Dr. Werner Schäfer

With deep sorrow and regret the ICC family has learnt that Dr. Werner Schäfer passed away on 1st December 2015. With his passing the German as well as the international cereal science have lost an impressive and extraordinary personality. Dr. Schäfer was ICC Deputy National Delegate of (West-) Germany over many years and it goes without saying that he was involved in the founding of the Association in 1955 in Hamburg, Germany. Also, he was leader of the ICC Working Group "Besatz". During the ICC Jubilee Conference 1995 Dr. Schäfer was awarded the Friedrich Schweitzer Medal for his distinguished service in the furtherance of the aims and ideals of ICC. Dr. Schäfer will be greatly missed by everybody who knew him. His memory will stay in ICC forever.
