Network, Innovation, Territories, Globalization (RITM)

Research unit


RITM (Network, Innovation, Territories, Globalization) is a research laboratory in economics and management of the University Paris Sud (EA 7360). It was created, in 2014, after the merger of ADIS and PESOR laboratories and is located at the Faculty Jean-Monnet.

The research at RITM is based on two axes. The first axis focuses on the relationship between networks and innovation, while the second focuses on the relationship between territories and globalization.

The laboratory is a member of the Research in International Economics and Finance network, relies on chairs (energy, intangible), and participates in European contracts. It develops various ANR projects and is a partner of the labex LISIS.
