Introduction

The objectives are:

  • to contribute to the development and valorization of the science of sustainability, which includes on the one hand the sciences on sustainability (understanding how complex economic, geographical, sociological, legal, physical, and biological systems work) and the sciences in the service of sustainability (supporting sustainable policies, transitions, positive social transformations, and education).
  • to train more specifically high-level master's students in applied research in sustainability sciences and in the major current and future energy and environmental issues. They will work in research centers, in companies, in local authorities, or in large national and international institutions concerned with developing transdisciplinary research embodied by the science of sustainability.
  • to make the students actors of the understanding, the diffusion, and even the production of knowledge in these fields by building an ecosystem of knowledge in social sciences in the fields of energy and environment;
  • to progressively build up a catalog of online courses that are partly "self-supplied" and likely to respond as closely as possible to students' projects;
  • to intensify international links with universities hosting masters in social sciences related to energy and environment issues and with research institutions and organizations displaying sustainability science in these privileged research and intervention axes (UNESCO MOST Program, IRD, etc.)
