Dr. Morgane M.C. Fritz holds a PhD in Sustainability Management in Supply Chains that she obtained in 2017 at the University of Graz, Austria. Since September 2018, she joined the group as an Assistant Professor in Supply Chain Management and became Associate Professor as of September 2019. Her teaching activities concern supply chain management, information management for supply chain management, e-supply chain management, research methods and CSR. Her research activities and interests focus on sustainability management, supply chain management, stakeholder management, resources management, and Corporate Social Responsibility. Her research has led to more than 20 peer-reviewed publications in journals, book chapters, and industry reports together with international researchers. She is also acting as a reviewer for several academic journals. Currently, she supervises 10 students on their Master Thesis and she is also co-responsible for the validation of Master Thesis subjects.

Between 2012 and 2018, Morgane worked as a project employee at the Institute of Systems Sciences, Innovation and Sustainability Research, at the University of Graz, Austria. She was part of several European and Austrian projects on the following topics: sustainable energy supply and business models in medium-sized cities (Energieschwamm Bruck, 2015-2016); the intangible benefits of energy efficiency (IN-BEE, FP7 project, 2015-2017); the processing of Critical Raw Materials from industrial waste streams (AKRoSa, 2015-2018); and the development of a platform to exchange sustainability-related data and indicators along the supply chain (SustainHub, FP7 project, 2012 – 2015).

She has also experience as a consultant in sustainable mining working for denkstatt GmbH (Austria), the IIED (UK) and as a Business Developer for the recycling of waste materials such as concrete (Lafarge Aggregate, France, 2010-2011) and bottom ashes (INASHCO B.V., Netherlands, 2009-2010).
