Van der Veen's research interests are in Operations Research, Operations & Logistics Management, Lean and Supply Chain Management. His work focuses on implementation issues in chain cooperation (and in particular logistics chains, construction chains and care chains). He is interested in how cooperation in the internal and external chains can be stimulated and how the underlying problems can be eliminated. This is a multidisciplinary study in which collaboration between disciplines is very important; Nyenrode is a great environment for research with its inspiring and committed colleagues.
