Workshop for Supply Chain Research Hub
Conducting research in supply chain has received great interest across industry, government and the research community, yet remains under-researched and non-existent within Australian universities. Only few universities in Australia have supply chain related departments, and none of them have a dedicated research hub. To ensure the competitiveness of Australian industries and their participation in global supply chains, it is a necessity to establish an Industry-Focused Supply Chain Research (SCR) Hub that works with industry to address their identified (and other related) issues. The Hub will support research focused on business applications, the sharing of information across industries, and make research available through publications and seminars. As a key part of this initiative, Hub researchers will work with member firms to develop, install and implement leading edge supply chain innovation solutions in member companies as well as publish results in leading industry publications and top tier academic journals.
Dr Pieter Nagel from ASCI and Associate Professor Renu Agarwal, Director of SSCM programs have been instrumental in announcing UTS as the first University to become an ASCI Corporate Member. We are collaboratively attempting to influence SCM professionals and the governments’ role in ASCI’s mission to professionalise Supply Chain Management. Under the premise of the Centre for Business and Social Innovation, UTS Business School, the Operations and Supply Chain Management Group along with ASCI and Professor John Gattorna Managing Director, Gattorna Alignment have taken steps to investigate the establishment of a SCR Hub at UTS.
To establish this SCR Hub, we believe that the input from industry practitioners and government officials is highly relevant and important. In this aspect, we have organised a workshop for collecting data and information from supply chain practitioners.
