The Council for Scientific Information Infrastructures mourns the death of its member Prof. Dr. Doris Wedlich, who died on September 20, 2020. Doris Wedlich was one of the founding members of the RfII. She was appointed in 2014 and represented the perspective of the scientific users. Experienced, committed and always optimistic, she pushed important infrastructure topics on the political agenda. Doris Wedlich was also strongly committed in bringing policy recommendations into implementation, such as the National Research Data Infrastructure in Germany. We will miss her.
