Vision and ambition
- Involving stakeholders and actors during the framing of research questions to gain relevance and serve economic actors in their strategic shaping
- High involvement in shaping research questions to influence the evolution of management research
- Maintaining high level of publications to legitimate research based interactions
As Associate Dean for Research and member of the exec-committee, I have been designing and implementing the research strategy of the school: Engaging with actors to design research questions; define strategy for visibility; incentive scheme for supporting publications and creating a real culture of research through a rich intellectual life. GEM has a decent research track record.
During the last 10 years, I develop my academic leadership in three different ways: first of all, I choose emerging topics to propose special issues to leading journals (Research Policy, Journal of Technology Transfer, Technovation, amongst others). Second, I accept to serve as board member in Academic organization like EGOS, in large European project like Prime Network of Excellence and finally in boards of journals – associate editor in M@n@gement and Technovation, editorial board in Research Policy, Organization Studies and Long Range Planning up to 2014. In addition, I have been supervising PhD students and DBAs to share research based ways to enquire the world.
I published more than 70 papers in leading journals like SMJ, Research Policy, Small Business Economics, or JIBS, 2 edited books on trust (in French), and about 20 book chapters and articles in professional journals. He received more than 3,200 citations on Google Scholar, and more than 500 citations on Web of Science (Thompson).
