It is with deep sadness that we inform you that Professor Jacek Kochanowicz, an eminent Polish economic historian and a long-time friend of the IWM, passed away on October 2. He took part in many workshops and conferences organized by our Institute, served as head of the Polish national research team in various IWM projects, and published a number of papers in our journal Transit
. We will remember him as a very knowledgeable, modest and reliable colleague who could mix serious scholarship with a strong sense of irony.
