Mr Raymond Bérard deceased
The passing of Mr Raymond Bérard on July 29th, 2016 is infinitely sad for all of us at the Inist.
As Director of the Inist from July 1st, 2013 to November 20th, 2015, he supervised the thorough transformation of our Institute with conviction and dedication, committed as he was to giving us the capabilities to meet the scientific and technical information needs of scientific communities more efficiently.
His personal and professional dedication supported a noble ambition and commands respect from all Inist members particularly as we all know how he drew on so much courage and foresight despite his illness.
His attachment to us will remain in our memories and will be with us for a very long time in the fulfilment of our missions. All Inist members join with deep emotion in the tribute paid by the CNRS.
