Innovation et territoires de montagne

First winter university of Labex ITEM

Première université d'hiver du Labex ITEM

*  *  *

Published on Friday, June 07, 2013


Le Labex Innovation et Territoires de la Montagne (ITEM) organise sa première université d’hiver destinée à promouvoir les innovations dans la recherche ancrée sur les territoires de montagne, tant thématiques que méthodologiques ou théoriques, en valorisant les travaux de futurs chercheurs et jeunes chercheurs. L’appel à communication s’adresse donc en priorité  aux étudiants en master 2 (ou équivalent) et aux jeunes chercheurs : doctorants, post-doctorants, chercheurs débutants ou en cours d’insertion (CDD, chercheurs et enseignants-chercheurs nouvellement recrutés).



The Labex ITEM project, Innovation and Mountain Territories, aims at developing an interdisciplinarity in Human and Social Sciences (geography, economy, history, tourism, law, political sciences, marketing, management of natural environments, sports) to respond to current and emerging challenges/issues of mountain territories.

It is a collective project initiated by various laboratories and research teams of the University of Grenoble-Alpes (LARHRA, EDYTEM, DTM-IRSTEA, IREGE, SENS, CERDHAP, PACTE) along with some federative structures as PARN, MSH-Alpes, INNOVACS or "Institut de la Montagne".

Part of the training actions of the project is the organisation of summer/winter courses to promote innovation in research, to share crossed methodological approaches and combine theory and practice, and to highlight the works of young and future researchers.

This call for paper is particularly aimed to Master 2 students (or equivalent) and for young researchers: Phd students, post-doctoral fellows, young and future researchers (temporaries, newly recruited lecturers and researchers).

The First international Winter school will encompass a wide range of subjects related to innovation and mountain territories’ mutations through social and spatial dynamics. It will give priority to contributions dedicated to innovation from an epistemological, methodological or research's practices point of view (interdisciplinary, co-construction).
