In Memoriam Veronica Brady

Dear EASA members and friends,


I am very sorry to inform you that our dearest colleague and friend Veronica Brady passed away last August. She was, without doubt, a beacon for many of us, a presence, a role model, a free spirit whom we will never forget. If only there were more academics like her!


The following vale for Veronica was written by Dennis Haskell.


Best wishes,
Lola Herrero
EASA Secretary
