We are sorry to announce the very sad loss of Ir. Philippe van Asbroeck who was the EURO Permanent Secretary between 1993 and 2012. Philippe supported all activities of EURO and ran the office throughout this period. Many of you will have known Philippe and valued his support over this period, as he was vital to the efficient running of the Association. His dedication and 'institutional memory' benefited national societies as well as individual members. Alongside of all previous EURO presidents, his service was recognised through an award which was handed out at the EURO XXV EURO-k Conference in Vilnius on July 10th 2012.

Those who have worked with him appreciated his kindness, competence and collaborative attitude. He has been a great friend and supporter. It has been a privilege to know and work with him. We will miss him.

Gerhard Wäscher, President of EURO (2014-2015)
