ERSA Community is deeply saddened by the sudden death of Roberto Camagni, Past President of ERSA, Professor Emeritus of Regional and Urban Economics at Politecnico di Milano, and long-term contributor to Regional science.

Roberto Camagni passed away on 3 April at the age of 76 in Milan.

Between 2003 and 2005, Roberto acted as President of the European Regional Science Association. Moreover, for twenty years (1987-2016) Roberto was President of the GREMI- Groupe de Recherche Européen sur les Milieux Innovateurs, In 2010, he received the ERSA Prize and in 2017, he became Fellow of the Regional Science Association International.
