Berthold Butscher




It is a sorrowful moment for Fraunhofer Portugal as we mourn the passing of our beloved friend and Executive Board member, Berthold Butscher.

Berthold Butscher was a member of the Fraunhofer Portugal Executive Board since its first day in 2008.

As a member of the Board, he shaped and inspired the creation and successful evolution of Fraunhofer Portugal's first research centre: AICOS.

Berthold Butscher was an extraordinary and unique person. He was passionate about building bridges to a better future, the grounds for his meaningful impact at Fraunhofer Portugal. In this way, he touched the lives of all of us at Fraunhofer Portugal.

On behalf of Fraunhofer Portugal, we offer Berthold Butscher’s family, friends and Fraunhofer colleagues our most heartfelt condolences and sympathy at this difficult time.
