Main research results
1.    "Innovation multi-project management" concept
Specific skills were acquired, thanks to collaborative research projects conducted with companies such as Liebherr Aerospace Toulouse. Liebherr Aerospace Toulouse is an international aircraft system manufacturer. During the research, a multi-project management framework was developed and implemented. This framework structures the R&D and innovation process of the company, by linking both innovation project management and strategy.
2.     Understanding and improving management practices in innovating organizations and networks 
I am able to analyze organisational complexity by taking into account the specificities of the study context ; that by using a theoretical framework I elaborated, that combines knowledge relating to the Resource-based view, the evolutionary theory, and the organization theories.
