  Our colleague Klaus Breuer passed away unexpectedly on 9 June 2018. With him, we are losing a committed, productive, creative and dedicated colleague with whom we were personally connected during many years of his work. He has promoted the interdisciplinary and international dialogue in vocational education research and made it visible in a large number of cooperation projects and he has been a member of WERA since its inception. His particular concern was research on the topic of financial literacy. Here he succeeded in establishing an innovative international research network at WERA: "International Research Network on Financial Literacy as a 21st century Skill - Cross Cultural Approaches to Research".

At the same time, Klaus was particularly interested in promoting emergent researchers. Also, in this area he gave important impulses for the developments in WERA. He has understood how to inspire emergent researchers for international cooperation in an intelligent, friendly and professional way. Klaus was not only a regular participant in the scientific meetings of WERA, he also assumed responsibility and accompanied the development of WERA as a member of the board of the German Educational Research Association (DGfE/ GERA). He was closely involved in international and interdisciplinary educational research, far beyond the interest in his own field. Klaus was a knowledgeable, warm-hearted and humorous colleague who was instrumental in shaping the fortunes of WERA. And it is precisely in this spirit that we will keep him in living memory.
