Obituary – Jutta Graf

August 10, 2021

It is with great sadness that we were learned that Dr Jutta Graf (longtime head of ‘Scientific Information’ at DLR, previously site manager in DLR Oberpfaffenhofen) passed away unexpectedly on July 28, 2021.

Jutta Graf has been an active stakeholder in the field of open science in the Helmholtz Association since 2004. She was a member of the group that developed a roadmap for the implementation of the Berlin Declaration after it had been signed by the Helmholtz Association. With the declaration, open access as well as the topic of research data gained center stage for Helmholtz; in the years that followed, she focused on the management of research data. Since then, and through her longstanding commitment while chairing the open science working group, Jutta Graf has campaigned intensively for the promotion of open science in the Helmholtz Association.

We will miss her dearly and will keep her honorable memory in our thoughts.
