About this Event

Firms are increasingly relying on their supply networks to succeed in the marketplace as the scope of their dependency extends to numerous partners, buyer-supplier relationships, and various knowledge prevalent in the networks. Join us as we discuss the behaviour and structure of supply networks that are organised to bring goods and services to final assemblers.
