Overview - KTO

​Who we are


The Knowledge, Technology, and Organisation (KTO) research centre is an interdisciplinary team of researchers, located in the south of France, on SKEMA Business School's Sophia Antipolis campus. Members of our research team come from a wide array of organisations. These include the Law, Economics, and Management Research Group (GREDEG) - a unit of the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, as well as members of the French Economic Observatory (OFCE-SciencesPo).

What we do


KTO seeks to contribute to academic and policy debates about economic and management challenges in a knowledge-based global economy. Our core focus is on the study of innovation and knowledge in organisational, industrial and regional contexts. The KTO research centre also hosts the Corporate Gender Diversity Observatory, and offers a PhD programme in management.
