Operations Management and Logistics Analysis for Sustainability


What is the LabGOALS?

The lab addresses contemporary engineering issues in the face of operations management, logistical analysis and supply chain integration during socio-technical transitions in environmental, social and economic sustainability.

It adopts an ecological logic in search of a greater good for society, economy and individuals, in a business world characterized by volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity – VUCA world.

We adopt an ecological logic, in search of the greater good for society in a business world based on uncertainty and volatility. Our objective is to be close to the concerns of the industry without neglecting the environment.
