Hans is one of the few academics who perform action research. He brought forward his vision of “industry-driven research” showing that it is possible to carry out outstanding scientific research to answer issues in practice. His research philosophy has been adopted by many colleagues, implicitly or explicitly. He has contributed to narrowing the gap between industry and academia. Many people present today have worked with him. We appreciate him as a researcher as well as a person: modest, realistic, sharp, and always grounded.
