Dr. Johannes Fichtinger: 1976-2017

It is with our deepest regret and great sorrow to report that Dr. Johannes Fichtinger, Assistant Professor at the Institute for Production Management of  the Vienna University of Economics and Business passed away on September 1, 2017 after two years of fight against a serious illness.

As one of his last tasks he has completed, Johannes with his team organized a succesful ISIR Summer School in Vienna from August 21-25, for which our community is really grateful.

Our deepest sympathy goes out to his family, his wife Dr. Emel Arikan-Fichtinger, and his 5-year-old son, Serkan.
