Professor Alan Pearson – obituary

January 23, 2019

We are very sad to announce the death of Professor Alan Pearson, who passed away in January.  Alan was founder of the R&D Research Unit at Manchester Business School, founder of the R&D Management Journal, founder of the R&D Management Conference series and the chairman of RADMA until October 2013.  As well as being a leading figure in the field, Alan was generous with his time and collaborated with, and inspired, many in the R&D Management community – he always remained interested in the progress of RADMA.
