Professorship for Global Supply Chain Management


Prof. Aseem Kinra in collaboration with researchers from the University of Southern Denmark, and the Copenhagen Business School aim to support companies in building resilient supply chains, as part of a new international research project funded by the Danish Industry Foundation. The current COVID-19 pandemic has shown how vulnerable global supply chains of manufacturing companies are to high impact low frequency events. The goal is to enable affected companies to deal with unexpected events such as pandemics, natural disasters or cyber-attacks and to restore the performance of supply chains by means of tangible tools and methods.
