The EurOMA-sponsored THENEXOM network has been approved by the European Commission through its Socrates Community Action Program. THENEXOM's short-term goal is to analyze the present state of Operations and Supply Chain Management in European Universities and to identify strengths and weaknesses in order to instigate the use of better practices. A census will be drawn up of OM teachers throughout the 24 countries (and 27 universities) making up the network. Furthermore, a survey will be taken of the teaching staff, content and methods employed. The network's medium-term aim is to tighten links between teaching, research and business practice.
