We grieve for Prof. Dr. Dres. h.c. Arnold Picot

On 9 July 2017, Prof. Dr. Dres. h.c. Arnold Picot passed away suddenly and unexpectedly.

Arnold Picot was Professor Emeritus of the Munich School of Management (LMU Munich), where he taught and carried out his research since 1987. He was a close friend to the institute as well as a committed supporter, teacher, advisor, and mentor to many colleagues and students. He was one of the initiators of the International Max Planck Research School for Competition and Innovation (IMPRS-CI) which marks a first significant step towards the establishment of the department for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Research. Since 2014, he was a member of the Advisory Board of the Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition.

The institute has lost a well-respected and warm-hearted colleague. He will be sadly missed and held in grateful memory.
