The Foundation

The Vietsch Foundation was created by Willem Karel Vietsch (1952-2014) through his last will and testament. The foundation was established on the day of his death, the 23th of February 2014.

Karel was very involved in the Internet community. He spent a large part of his life working in the area of research and education networking, which he help developing with his energy, creativity and thorough methodical approach. Sadly, his early death, put a stop to Karel’s mission to support people and new developments, therefore he created the Vietsch Foundation, with the official objective of promoting “research into and development of advanced technology for scientific research and higher education”, in the widest sense. Karel himself appointed the trustees of the Foundation.
