Research projects: current activities, references

This page updates regularly on our projects, and links to the different (academic) websites documenting the projects.
We do not have an exclusive relationship with the newPIC chair at Paris School of Business, but our most recent research projects develop there with service contracts.

All these research projects require extensive field research activities mixing interviews, focus groups, and ethnographic methods, or quantitative protocols using modelisation or data bases. We eventually travel to execute our qualitative protocols but the largest part of our projects elaborates on interviews organized with teleconferences run fom Luxembourg.
