Natalia Bobadilla. Assistant Professor in Strategy and HRM at the University of Rouen-Normandie.
“I worked several years as a project manager for multinational companies. I have been actively committed since 2010 in the scientific coordination and development of research programs linking art and management mutations at the national and international levels. These projects have led to the formalization of a new research method ABCD (Art-based collective and dialogical) (ABRIR, 2012), the creation of an alternative academic newspaper (DYSFUNCTION) and a methodology for art-based research dissemination. My research focuses on work transformations which I study mainly in creative and R&D contexts by using innovative methods. Today as a young researcher, my objective is to acquire scientific autonomy by developing my own research idea. The goal is to federate a multidisciplinary project team and to continue exploring new methodologies to understand contemporary work issues and mutations. This ANR JCJC is a unique opportunity to position my research idea, to consolidate my knowledge and skills in the field of work mutations. The the body of knowledge built in this project could contribute to the preparation of my habilitation thesis to supervise research in organization studies and thus pushing my scientific career forward. The project will also support the development of the NIMEC laboratory. In the medium term, once the project finalized, I aim to have sufficient knowledge respond to calls from the European Commission (H2020) with increased chances of success. The project composition fully considers the multidisciplinary aspect of the project thus ensuring skills and knowledge among the different themes as concerns in the coordination of the work program, to reach the project objectives. The project team consists of researchers from different universities and research laboratories: University of Rouen Normandy, IAE de Paris (Sorbonne Business School), University Paris-Dauphine, the University of Liege (HEC), National Superior School of Architecture of Paris La Villette (ENSAPLV), the design school Camondo and the superior school of art and design Le Havre Rouen (ESADHaR).”
