Andreas Hilboll

 

One year after the unexpected loss of Dr. Andreas Hilboll, the very first victim of Covid-19 in Crete,  the Laboratory for Modeling and Observation of the Earth System (LAMOS) of the University of Bremen (Germany) and the Environmental Chemistry Processes Laboratory (ECPL) of the University of Crete (Greece) offer four (4) Andreas Hilboll travel scholarships to honor his memory and strengthen the collaboration between the two laboratories and Universities.

Andreas was a talented young scientist, motivated to achieve a better understanding of air pollution and climate change and educate the next generation of students. He was an excellent and dedicated researcher, a highly intelligent individual, an inspiring teacher, and a passionate advisor. Most importantly, Andreas was an extremely kind and generous person who cared for others and was always available to discuss problems and find solutions. Dr. Andreas Hilboll was a well-respected and much-liked member of the international atmospheric chemistry community.
