Alberto Heimler, the international face of Italian antitrust has announced that he will be leaving the Italian Competition Authority to return to academia. He will take a professorship at the Scuola Superiore della Pubblica Amministrazione (School of Public Administration in Rome). For those of you who have grown accustomed to Alberto's analytical insights, wit and charm in international settings -- do not fear. He will continue as an advisor to the Chair of the Italian Competition Authority for international affairs and special projects. He also will continue his involvement with the OECD and the ICN. Alberto, may you have much continued success in academia and I hope that an academic schedule will make it more likely that you can do a mini-course at the University of Florida during the winter (and have time to go to Disney World with your family).
