On 19 January 2010, Henk van Luijk passed away at the age of 80. Professor van Luijk was one of the pioneers of business ethics and is considered as the patriarch of business ethics in Europe. He was the inspirational chairman of the European Business Ethics Network (EBEN), an organization that was set up on his initiative, and which he co-founded, in 1986. (See In Memoriam)

He participated in several projects of ours including the Trans-Atlantic Business Ethics Conferences. We remember him as a great friend and an excellent scholar.
