In memoriam: Prof. Alistair Anderson

Author: Francisco Liñán

We regret to announce the sad news that Prof. Alistair Anderson, distinguished professor of Entrepreneurship at Lancaster University, has passed away on 26th March 2021 at home in Aberdeen, following a short illness.

Alistair has been a friend and a strong supporter of ESU Network from its inception. Has been involved in several of the ESU Conferences, providing most inspiring keynote sessions and coaching PhD students; generously sharing his expertise with all ESU members.

Within the field of entrepreneurship, Alistair was incredibly influential and especially supportive of junior scholars. His role as editor-in-chief of Entrepreneurship and Regional Development for over 12 years has undoubtedly left a deep mark in the entrepreneurship academic community.

Alistair was a great person, a key scholar in our field and a very good friend to us all.

We already miss him.
