About us

The marketing and strategy research team includes members with a shared interest in the analysis of interactions between society and marketing. Beginning with the market, the focal point of the team’s research over the relevant period, they systematically reveal the links and interactions between firms and their clients, organisations and consumers, society and citizens, and firms and society. This approach produces both theoretical and methodological contributions at the highest level, as well as managerial and societal contributions.

In 2017, the DRM Ermes team has a total of 14 members, 2 associate researchers, 1 postdoctoral researcher and 20 doctoral researchers.

The team regularly holds a research seminar on Thursdays as well as doctoral seminars, and maintains links with the chair on the Performance of Organisations and with several research centres.

Key events in the life of the team from 2012 to 2017

  • Development of the experimental laboratory, put in place in 2011, which facilitates the introduction of experimental methods and serves as a support tool for the DRM laboratory as a whole;

  • The introduction and development of research contracts is another noteworthy feature of the team’s work:
