It is with great sadness that we have learnt that Heinz Rhein, founder of the
ASCERI, passed away at the age of 86.
Heinz was a very friendly, social and positive person. He was a leader with a lot
of charisma. He very early thought that we could bring people together through sports.
In 1973, he proposed to add 9 different kind of sports to the football tournament.
The event attracted 540 participants from 13 research institutes from 5 countries
and was called "ATOMIADE"...Heinz was so proud to see that the ASCERI had
grown to 42 research institutes from 16 European countries.
We will continue his work, for sure.
