Kees Burger, former Foundation chair and editor, passed away

It is with deep regret that the Board of the EAAEP Foundation has to inform you that the former chair of the board of the ERAE Foundation (now the EAAEP Foundation) and former editor of ERAE, Kees Burger, died on September 7th, 2016 at the age of 65. Although we were aware of the fact that Kees was severly ill for the last two years, his death comes as a shock to all of us. Kees was a very fine colleague who has greatly contributed to the development of the European Review of Agricultural Economics. We will remember him for these and other contributions to the profession.
