The CERIIM, our Centre of Research for Innovation and Intelligence in Management, beyond traditional managerial themes (strategy, finance, marketing, human resources, supply chain), focusses on 3 specific areas of research which correspond to the expertise of our Faculty and the Group’s positioning, as well as being intrinsically linked to the School’s mission.
There is an area of academic freedom for contributions from teachers whose works, for various reasons, do not fit into one of the three areas of research. This does not constitute another area of research, but is referred to as ‘Concepts and Practices in Management’.
Each area of research includes academic research, applied research and pedagogical research. Within these areas of research, when a theme meets an economic need, an institute, which can include Company Agreements and Chairs, is created. Two of the Group's three lines of research have led to the creation of institutes. An institute is therefore an organisation that crystallises a body of knowledge and savoir-faire produced by the School. The aim is for an institute to be considered as a centre of outstanding expertise in its professional and academic environment.
The CERIIM holds regular meetings, during which invited research-active Faculty present their work and research methodology.
Research policy is determined in close collaboration with the members of the Research Advisory Board, which is composed of national and international figures from the world of research.
The Research Advisory Board examines and evaluates the research strategy as well as how research is to be structured. It advises on the future development of research activities, the securing of international cooperation and the strengthening of links with industry. It ensures the coherence of research policy and, with this in mind, advises on the broad guidelines and principles for assessing the quality of research and the researchers themselves. The Research Advisory Board meets twice a year.
