Environment Day

Environment day for PhD's and postdoc


Environment Day is one of the main tools of the United Nations to encourage awareness and action for the protection of the environment.

FERED has decided this year to organise this day for PhD's and postdocs,

June 2, 2022 from 10am to 5pm at the Patio of the Esplanade campus (Room 11.07).


This day was organised around several workshops, activities, presentations and meals on the theme of sustainable development and professional transition after a thesis.

This event highlighted the concept of a green and more sustainable laboratory, as well as the existing initiatives at Unistra.

A PhD... and after? Get ready:

Besides career testimonies from academic and industrial professionals, we also hosted l´Espace avenir, offering prospective career orientation with information, advice and specialised resources to help you in your reflection and your steps. Do not hesitate to consult it in its entirety, and remember that it is during the doctorate that the post-thesis period is prepared: in conjunction with the research activity.

Resource management in the context of sustainable urban development (“NaMaRes”)

Elias NABER, Research Associate at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) / University of Karlsruhe made a short conference about the NaMaRes Project.

Densely built-up areas are challenged by reduced biodiversity, high volumes of runoff water, reduced evaporation, and heat accumulation. Such phenomena are associated with imperviousness and low, unsustainable utilisation of land and exterior building surfaces. Local authorities face multiple objectives when (re-)developing future-proof districts. Hence, exploiting local potentials to mitigate adverse anthropogenic effects and managing the resource of urban land/surfaces have become key priorities. The NaMaRes research project investigates the urban (re-)development in districts. The results support sustainable urban development and process-accompanying sustainability assessment at the district level. A five-level hierarchy for a land-sensitive urban development strategy is derived. To support the operationalisation of the hierarchy, we present a highly resolved GIS-based approach to enable a spatially explicit identification and techno-economic and environmental assessment of intervention measures for advantageous utilisation of available surfaces per land parcel.

Labo 1Point5

The Labos 1point5 research group (GDR) is a scheme supported by the CNRS, INRAE and ADEME (see here for more details).
The GDR is organised around three axes

  •     measuring and characterising the footprint of public research in France in terms of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions ('Footprint' axis)
  •     the study of the organisation and practices of research in relation to this footprint ("Surveys" axis);
  •     as well as a transverse "Experimentation" axis concerning the support and facilitation of the implementation of reduction trajectories within the laboratories.

The activities of the reflection team focus on the issue of reducing the environmental footprint of research. Please use this form to participate in the discussions, the elaboration of texts and the position-taking of the collective on this subject (see here for more details).
