The ERIM-LIS (Business Processes, Logistics, and Information Systems) research program consists of three main research themes: (i) Supply Chain Management; (ii) Business Information Management, and (iii) Innovation Management. The reader of this project description on Supply Chain Management is encouraged to visit the other project descriptions within the LIS-program as well.

The aim of the ERIM-LIS research group is to be at the forefront of the developments in its domain and to make major contributions both to management science and to management practice. The research aims to contribute significantly to the leading role of the Netherlands as a gateway to Europe and as an innovative country. Much of the research is inspired by business challenges, and by the new opportunities of innovative information and communication systems, and technologies.

The research in the ERIM-LIS program is inter-disciplinary, integrating both quantitative and empirical research methods. Around the main research themes several research centres have been built (e.g. Smart Port, Behavioural Operations, Closed Loop Supply Chains, Optimization in Public Transport, Procurement, and Future Energy Business), which are used to focus the research, to acquire external funding, and to disseminate the research findings.
