RISE lecture series

Focusing on environmental and sustainability research, RISE deepens the following themes

  • Reflexive approach on socio-ecosystems and their trajectories: building bridges between human and social sciences and bio-geophysical sciences,
  • Urban transition and climate change,
  • Which transition towards a sustainability of hydrosystems in a context of global change? - The Upper Rhine Valley, a cross-border innovation hub.

The RISE organizes a series of lectures on these themes on Fridays from 10 to 11 am.


The aim of this conference cycle is to prepare the RISE workshops to construct research projects and to strengthen scientific interactions. It gives the floor to internationally recognized personalities in sustainability science.



  • Friday 5 novembre : 11:30 am - Si le sol disparaît, où se porteront nos pas ? Itinéraires en Louisiane - PROF. MATTHIEU DUPERREX (FR)
