This day marks the opening of our Cyber collection of memories from our time in Lausanne and the various Anniversary reunions that have taken place since then. Already news from our colleagues are coming with messages like:
"... Just few minutes was enough to travel from 1978 to now. All of us got old, few passed away but still lots of energy I can feel inside the group.
Now we can be updated imediately by just writing few words. Let´s do it."

Great idea to have a special area to put information about us. I would like to read and see (pictures) of all PED 15 friends are doing and what they comment about the day to day life. Let´s practice.
Few words about me. Now almost 65 (Oct 31st) still working hard: CEO of a state foundation for supporting R&D&Inovation projects; teaching part time at University; member of few organizations boards; president of a national council of state foundations.
Married with same wife, Maria Cacilda, one daugther Paula 28, still at home.

Great stuff Sergio. You make me feel very old - 74 next week. After the shock of losing my wife Ann in 2004 I was very lucky to find Janet who came with me to our 34 year reunion last year. Her first remark "how amazing that you have such good friends from 34 years ago". So I now have 5 children and 9 grandchildren. Interestingly my Swiss grandson has just joined Nestle to make the third generation of my family to join the company. With all this I have no time for work - stopped 5 years ago. Hope everyone will come to the next reunion which will be in Switzerland in the autumn of 2014. Camille will be the organiser

Hello Kurt!! Wonderful to hear from you after so many years and trust this initiative will help strengthen our communication.
You can’t imagine how many times I’ve brought back the learning experiences during our days at IMEDE, particularly your dissertations on Finance that has evolved to become the center of the present world’s re-shifting, together with the Information and Communication’s developments.
As I understand, you are active in your academic profession; certainly now equipped with the latest technology – imagine how we could survive without Excel those days!!!
You used to say: “I am afraid I’m not mechanically minded, but I appreciate that some of my students have arrived in the world and are able to keep me advised of the time”.
And remember these other famous Quotes?
- “Nobody had really the time to think about the difference between common and preferred shares in terms of convertible bonds… (Merger negotiations)
- “The situation became more tense. Pedro started sucking his pipe more and more until he dropped it and switched to cigarettes…”
- “At 12:47pm all kinds of offers were coming out…”
