My name is Wendy van der Valk and I am an Endowed Professor of Purchasing & Supply Chain Management at Tilburg University, sponsored by the Dutch association for purchasing management Nevi. My remit includes stimulating research and teaching in the field of purchasing and supply management.
My research focuses on the effective governance of inter-organisational relationships in supply chains and network forms of organization. Of particularly interest is the impact of contemporary transitions in business and society, such as circularity, energy transition, and digitalization/ data, on effective inter-organisational governance.
I am involved with the Academic Collaborative Center on Climate & Energy as Academic Lead on behalf of TiSEM, and Director of the Tilburg Sustainability Center.
