GREGHEC

GREGHEC

The ”Groupement de Recherche et d’Etudes en Gestion à HEC Paris (GREGHEC)” is a CNRS - HEC Paris joint research lab. It is located on the HEC campus in Jouy-en-Josas. 

GREGHEC is one of the largest joint research laboratories in the fields of economics and management in France.

About the GREGHEC

 

GREGHEC brings together all the research conducted at HEC Paris and, as such, comprises both disciplinary and cross-disciplinary work. The research activities are organized both across the eight academic departments of HEC Paris corresponding to the main management disciplines and across several multidisciplinary research centers. 

GREGHEC is composed of a unique team of 160 researchers (CNRS researchers, HEC faculty and PhD students). It has been a Joint Research Laboratory (or « UMR » for « Unité Mixte de Recherche ») CNRS - HEC Paris since 2006. 

Christophe Pérignon, Associate Dean for Research of HEC Paris has been the head of GREGHEC since July 2016. He relies on a Laboratory Council made up of 10 persons elected or nominated (6 researchers, one PhD student, the administrative manager of the Lab and the Dean of Faculty of HEC Paris). 

The Laboratory falls within the Section 37 « Economics and Management » of the CNRS National Committee for Scientific Research (CoNRS) and within the CNRS Human and Social Sciences Institute (InSHS). The members of the GREGHEC with permanent positions are called to elect their representatives in the GREGHEC Laboratory Council and in the section 37, but also representatives in two scientific boards of the CNRS (the CNRS Scientific Board and the Scientific Board of the InSHS).
