About Josselin Droff

My Ph.D dissertation discussed spatial issues in defense economics, with a special focus on the industrial organization of Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) of defense platforms.I still work on the organization of defense production with concepts and tools of spatial and regional economic theory. More particularly, I am currently working on the application of spatial economic concepts to the organization of European defense. I'm also involved in a project financed by the French Defense Procurement Agency (Direction Générale pour l'Armement - DGA). The project deals with innovation issues in defense equipment. In another work in progress, I study the regional impact of French defense reforms since the beginning of the 2000s.
