It is with great sadness that we learnt of the death of Costel Subran who was very dear to us all at EDP Sciences.

Costel was a member of the EDP Sciences Board of Directors for several years, providing us with his expert and sympathetic view. He was also responsible for some of our most beautiful books, such as "La lumière en lumière" or "LumièreS", a magnificent work that was a finalist for the Roberval 2021 Prize.

A tireless promoter of Optics and Photonics, Costel was the President of the Coordinating Committee for the International Year of Light in France in 2015. EDP Sciences was also involved as one of the official partners.

“Costel was a frequent visitor to EDP Sciences. He was a brilliant and engaging person on whom we could always count. We will always remember him with affection, together with his generosity, his energy and his enthusiasm for new projects and initiatives.” Agnès Henri, Managing Director, EDP Sciences
