My name is Paul Chiambaretto and I am an Associate Professor of Marketing and Strategy at Montpellier Business School and an Associate Researcher at Ecole Polytechnique too.


I am also the director of "Chaire Pégase", an academic chair dedicated to the economics and management of the air transport and aerospace industries.


In parallel, I am a Senior Editor for the scientific journal M@n@gement (CNRS 2)

My main research topics are inter-organizational relationships such as alliances and coopetition.

Over the years, I have developed a strong expertise on the air transport industry. I often collaborate with airlines, airports, regulators, manufacturers on various topics.


To investigate these research topics, I combine different disciplines (strategy, marketing, economics, law, etc.) and also various methodological approaches (qualitative, quantitative, formal modelling and experiments).
