Today we bid farewell to our Professor and a great Friend of ACCEPT – Ryszard Borowicz. We were his students, rivals in sport, colleagues at work and beyond it. With Ryszard’s passing away we have lost an inestimable help and mobilization to work, his care over young investigators, and a great, humor-filled, irony.
Each message from him, apart from initiating an intellectual adventure because of his particular language, carried with good news. There was information on distinctions, proposals for collaboration, precious tips to follow, or invitations to conferences, seminars, meetings. He knew our team, appreciated and supported us. He never refused his help. Neither did he forget about his students. His death has left an empty place in our lives. It won’t be the same.
Professor, Ryszard – thank you and we shall never forget.
