A Tribute to Uwe Müller

It is with sadness that we learnt of the passing away of Uwe Müller in February 2019. Uwe was inextricably linked to his work at the German DINI initiative (German Initiative for Networked Information) which among other things has developed the DINI certificate to improve OA publishing and publication infrastructures.

Paving the way for linked repository landscape

Uwe’s dedication for over a decade in developing the DINI certificate led to the established guidelines and protocols to support the interoperability of repositories, and the DRIVER Guidelines. These ultimately led to the OpenAIRE guidelines, the backbone of our infrastructure.

OpenAIRE and the repository community is particularly grateful to Uwe for all the hard work he put into laying the foundations for the network of repositories which supports Open Science today.
