In memoriam Flemming Hansen
It is with great sadness that we received the news of the death of Professor Flemming Hansen, the founder of ICORIA and the European Advertising Academy (EAA).
Professor Hansen had a long and illustrious career in both market research and academia, latterly being the head of the Center for Marketing Communications in the Copenhagen Business School. It was here that he was able to exploit his interest in advertising by organising in May 2002 the Forum for Advertising Research Conference, which became the first ICORIA conference. Four years later, at the 4th ICORIA conference in Saarbruecken, he set up the European Advertising Academy, taking the role of President for two years.
We will all remember Professor Hansen for his erudition, inspiration, kindness and humour, and most of all for his great interest in helping others pursue their research into advertising. The members of the EAA send their condolences to his family for their great loss.
