Notice: Passing of Enrique Forero González

Enrique Forero González 1942 - 2023

The International Science Council is profoundly saddened and shocked by the sudden passing of our friend and colleague, Enrique Forero González. Enrique, a past president of the Colombian Academy of Exact, Physical and Natural Sciences, acted as the ISC’s Director for the Regional Focal Point for Latin America and the Caribbean. He also served on the ISC’s inaugural Committee for the Freedom and Responsibility of Science, and was active in the ISC’s predecessor organization, ICSU. His passing has left an irreplaceable void in our scientific community, and in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing and working with him.
