Once a month, the De Vinci Research Center’s Business Group welcomes a visiting researcher for a management science seminar.
The Business Group is one of the four research groups of the De Vinci Research Center laboratory. The latter gathers researchers from Pôle Léonard de Vinci’s three schools: management school EMLV, engineering school ESILV and web and digital school IIM.
Coordinated by Francesco Paolo Appio, the Business Group brings together EMLV lecturers and researchers. Research activities focus on four main areas: Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Marketing and Sales, International Relations and Human Resources Management.
Every month, the Business Group welcomes management science researchers for a series of seminars in relation with their research interests.
These academic research events are held on EMLV’s campus, in the heart of Paris La Défense business district. Open to the public, they are of two kinds.
In the first place, the “Meet the Editors” seminars welcome guests coming from editorial committees or scientific journals review panels related to management science research.
In January 2018, the Business Group invited Thomas Roulet, Senior Lecturer at the School of Management & Business at King’s College, London and HEC Paris for a seminar on the M@n@gement (CNRS 2) journal for which he is editor-in-chief. ESSEC’s lecturer and researcher Bernard Leca also was invited for a Meet the Editor event on the Organization Studies (CNRS 1) journal.
Furthermore, the Business Group research seminars are an occasion to have lecturers and researchers present their research activities.
The members of the Business Group thus invited Olivier Fournout, researcher at I3 for a presentation of the paper “The Hero-Leader Matrix in Business and Cinema” and Bart Van Looy, in charge of the INCENTIM to exchange views on the influence of artists on the economy of knowledge.
