Vincent MonteNeRo: Research & CV

Interpersonal and inter-organizational relations within commercial and industrial organizations.

Research Area 1: Displacements, “Dépaysements” and Discrepancies: People, Knowledge and Practices

Contact: vincent.montenero(@)

He is working on interpersonal and inter-organizational relations within commercial and industrial organizations. After working more than 25 years internationally, a period during which he managed several cross-cultural teams (up to 80 persons), he decided to become a teacher and a researcher. To that end, he earned a PhD in Management at Dauphine University (PSL Paris), with life in multinational corporations as his field of work.  

He focuses mainly on encounters with others in a professional environment, especially if these exchanges and cooperation take place among people from different cultures and background, and with an emphasis on those particularly significant times when human reactions upset the most elaborate business processes. Thanks to his managerial experience and his research on International Managers, he developed a series of training programs to promote a better understanding of the business environment and prepare future managers.

He is currently conducting two research projects, the first one addresses cooperation between individuals, professionals and institutions working in Central Europe and in Russia. The second project focuses on international managers and more specifically on their career paths within corporations, how they manage to work in an international environment, how they perceive the challenges they are facing and address them, as well as their ability to promote innovation. Both projects contribute to CEFRES’s research area 1 (Displacements, “depaysements” (uprootedness), and discrepancies: people, knowledge and practices).
