About the NEVI Chair of Purchasing and Supply Management at Eindhoven University of Technology
The first chair in Purchasing and Supply Management in The Netherlands was created in August 1989 by the School of Industrial Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology. In 1991 NEVI (Dutch Association for Purchasing Management) started to co-fund the Chair. Since then the chair was renamed in to the NEVI Chair of Purchasing and Supply Management. Prof dr Arjan van Weele is since that time responsible for all academic teaching programmes and PhD research. Currently, he is assisted by Regien Sumo, MSC (PhD candidate (full time) and Jelle de Vries, MSc (PhD candidate (parttime).
