BNERC: Sir Harry Kroto passed away

Sir Harry Kroto; Visiting Researcher of the Bio-Nano Electronics Research Centre and Visiting Professor of the Graduate School of Interdisciplinary New Science, passed away on 30th April 2016.

Sir Harry Kroto received the “1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry” for his discovery of fullerene. He participated in the advanced research programme as an Advisory Board Member of Toyo University from 2003 to 2015. He was not only a great chemist, but also a great scientist in general; some would say that his discovery of C60 fullerene initiated the new fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Furthermore, he established unique web educational programmes such as “Vega Science” and “GEOSET” and held children’s workshops all over the globe.

Sir Harry Krotomade a tremendous contribution to the development of advanced research at the Bio-Nano Electronics Research Centre as a visiting researcher and to the progress of the educational programmes at the Graduate School of Interdisciplinary New Science as a visiting professor.

Most importantly, he was an environmentalist and Humanist, who genuinely cared about students, people and the world in which we live… an exceptional human being.

We offer our sincere condolences to Margaret, Stephen and David.
