Prof. Michael Rotert

Prof. Michael Rotert is Vice-President of EuroISPA, the organisation that represents Europe’s Internet service provider industry. EuroISPA is the world’s largest association of ISPs.
Prof. Rotert is a prominent figure in the ISP sector. His work at the University of Karlsruhe in the 1980s established the first connection from Germany to the “Internet”; after setting up one of the first ISPs in Germany, he has since held senior management posts with a number of prominent European ISPs.
His expertise in the sector means he is regularly consulted in government-industry initiatives. For example, Prof. Rotert was part of the German delegation to the G8’s Cybercrime Summit.
Prof. Rotert became the President of the German ISP association in 2000 and was elected EuroISPA President from 2003 until 2008.
