Membre du personnel




Annick Castiaux has a sientific background as physicist. After some years in the research environment where she worked for the Belgian National Foundation for Research (FNRS), she decided to join the private sector. During five years, she worked as a consultant in Information and Knowledge Management for I.R.I.S. SA, an IT company located in Louveain-la-Neuve. This experience gave her some knowledge of organisations and their difficulties to manage technological changes. In 2002, she came back to the university, this time in the Business Administration Department of the University of Namur. She teaches strategy and innovation courses, integrating both technological and managerial viewpoint. Her research interest is in the field of innovation management, with a focus on ICT and sustainable (eco-friendly) technologies. She is motivated by the study of complex managerial situations where a systemic approach is needed, as collaborative innovation, team working, or network contexts. For this purpose, she recently developed methodological skills to simulate such situations using agent-based modelling. Annick Castiaux is also invited professor in the Facultés Universitaires Saint-Louis (Brussels) and in the Université Catholique de Louvain (Mons Campus).
