The GÉANT Community remembers Miroslav Milinović

We are extremely saddened to hear about the passing of our colleague and friend, Miroslav Milinović.

As Assistant Director of SRCE in Croatia, Miro was an integral part of the GÉANT community for many, many years: he was VP Conferences at TERENA and took responsibility for many roles in the GÉANT project. Miro was a member of the Joint Research Activity and Service Activity teams in the GN2 and GN3/GN3plus projects related to e-id, AAI technologies and mobility. He was task leader for eduroam in GN4-1 and task leader for Trust and Identity Operations in GN4-2. His current roles included those of chair of the eduroam operational team and service owner for eduroam.

As Chair of the Global eduroam Governance Committee, Miro was essential in turning eduroam into the global success story eduroam is today. He gave his time generously bringing new eduroam federations on board in his continuous effort to broaden eduroam’s geographic scope.

Miro had very clear views and opinions ensuring that we bring out the best results for our community. And Miro had time for us, he supported and mentored engineers and developers around the world making sure that all detail was fully understood and implemented.

We will miss Miro very much, in the GÉANT project, in our community, in our events and our daily interactions. He was a friend and guide to many and will be sorely missed.

As GÉANT we express our deepest condolences to his family, friends and his colleagues at SRCE and CARnet.
