Resum:


During the last decade, a number of challenging applications in logistics, tourism and other fields were modelled as orienteering problems (OP). In the orienteering problem, a set of vertices is given, each with a score. The goal is to determine a path, limited in length, that visits some vertices and maximises the sum of the collected scores. In this presentation, the literature about the orienteering problem and its applications is reviewed. The OP is formally described and many relevant variants are presented. A few state-of-the-art algorithms for variants of the orienteering problem are discussed in more detail.

Prof. dr. ir. Pieter VANSTEENWEGEN has a master degree in mechanical engineering (KU Leuven – Belgium, 2002) and a PhD in operations research (KU Leuven, 2008). After two years of post-doctoral research funded by the FWO (at KU Leuven) he became an assistant professor in October 2010 at the department of industrial engineering at UGent. From October 2012, he is an assistant professor at the centre of industrial management, traffic and infrastructure at KU Leuven.
His research aims at developing more robust timetables for the (Belgian) railways (together with the Belgian infrastructure manager Infrabel) and at developing metaheuristics for solving complex logistic and production planning problems.
A part of this research focuses on the automatic generation of personalised tourist trips. In order to commercialise the results of this research, he started a spin-off company (dyNAVic) with two colleagues managing the web site www.citytripplanner.com. Furthermore, this research leads to presentations at international conferences and publications in international reviewed journals such as "Transportation Science", “Journal of the Operational Research Society”, "European Journal of Operational Research", "Computers & Operations Research", "Transportation Research Part B: Methodological" and "Omega – International Journal of Management Science".
Prof. Vansteenwegen is a member of the executive committee and secretary of ORBEL (Belgian Society of Operations Research), active member of BIVEC-GIBET (Benelux Interuniversity Association of Transport Researchers) and member of the international Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS).

Spin-off performance: entrepreneurial capabilities and social networks of the founders in creation period (Thanh C. Huynh, Daniel A. Aranda, And Luis M. Molina-Fernández)

Resum:

 

This study examines spin-off performance from the perspectives of resource-based view and social networks of the founders. This explores the roles of pre-established factors in the financial and operational performance of a new venture. Such factors comprise entrepreneurial capabilities and social networks of the entrepreneurs before the spin-offs were established. These capabilities are constituted by technology, organizational capability, human resource, strategy, and commercial capability. The social networks are analyzed in structure, governance, and content dimensions. Based on the data from 181 university spin-offs in Spain, the paper empirically demonstrates that the entrepreneurial capabilities positively influence the performance of the spin-offs. The social networks of the founders indirectly affect the spin-off performance through enhancing the entrepreneurial capabilities.
