Métis research area: Logistics, Land, Sea, Risk


The purpose of the Logistics, Land, Sea, Risk research area is to structure and lead the research of the members of the Métis Laboratory in the fields of International Logistics and Territorial Development in the broadest sense.

These themes of primary importance for the wider territory of EM Normandie (England, Ireland, Normandy, Paris) give rise to a differentiating expertise that contributes to the international reputation of the School.

The area’s faculty members contribute to the development and dissemination of scientific knowledge aimed at providing lessons for cutting-edge pedagogy and developing managerial recommendations for decision-makers in the territory.

Research area members regularly publish in high-level international journals such as Operation Research, European Journal of Operational Research, International Journal of Production Economics, Economic Geography, Revue d’Economie Régionale et Urbaine, Transportation Research Part A: Policy and Practice, Supply Chain Forum: an International Journal, Journal of Business Ethics, Organization & Environment.

The Logistics, Land, Sea, Risk research area is represented in various territorial bodies related to research such as SFLOG (Federative Structure in Logistics), the Norman Interest Networks (NIN), the STENOR research federation (Territorial Sciences in Normandy) or the NOV@LOG Competitiveness Pole. The members of the research area are also members of the following scientific societies: INFORMS, POMS, EURO, AIRL-SCM, ASRDLF, ERSA, RSAI, CNFG, IAME.
