• 2015 European Research Seminar

  • The Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) and CBS – Copenhagen Business School are arranging the tenth European Research Seminar (ERS). 

    ERS is an interactive conference, which centers on intensive discussion on new developments and top quality research among all participants. The purpose of the ERS is to expose and discuss contemporary issues in European logistics and supply chain management. ERS is a platform for interaction both formally in the sessions and informally outside of them.

    Topics of interest for ERS are:

    • IT and digitalization within supply chains
    • Big data analysis: application in logistics and SCM
    • Supply chain learning and innovation: insights from European cases
    • Distribution strategies and (online) retailing in Europe
    • Impact of EU regulations on transport, logistics and SCM
    • European logistics service providers: strategy, structure and relationships
    • Development and implications of logistics clusters in Europe
    • Reverse logistics in a supply chain context
    • Barriers and facilitators of supply chain collaboration, integration and, alignment
    • Coping with uncertainties and risks in international and global supply chains

    This list is not exclusive and other issues – especially forward-thinking and innovative topics – relating to managerial aspects of logistics and SCM are welcomed. We encourage and invite the European academic research community to submit papers to be presented and discussed at the conference, but others are also welcome to submit.
