The talk of scientists

Environment and interdisciplinarity


É. Brun , J. Ponge , J. Lefeuvre

Edition 2018

The mode of operation of institutional research plays a decisive role. We must still think a demand of research in tune with what scientists are expecting, particularly in the evaluation and exploitation of their results. The book gives a large part to the talk of scientists, which we gathered and analysed. It opens the way to better understand the conditions under which interdisciplinary research in environment (climate, biodiversity, energy, pollution ...) can succeed. It also demonstrates that there can be no success of an interdisciplinary project without compatibility and complementarity of the postures of the actors involved. It interests the scientists involved in interdisciplinary projects, who will find material to put into perspective their activity, research managers, territorial managers, politicians, NGOs, students, young researchers, who will discover testimonies of precursors impassioned by the interdisciplinary adventure.
