What do we do ?
STUDIES AND FIELD SURVEYS
We carry out field studies and surveys for our clients. We use qualitative and quantitative methods used in human and social sciences, and develop innovative methodological protocols. We are driven by a fieldwork-anchored approach in order to produce quality data.
CONDUCT FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS
We co-direct research projects in humanities and social sciences with research institutes. We engage in projects that integrate real participative dimension. Knowledge is co-constructed with civil society actors and respondents in order to develop quality analyses on topics of general interest.
VALORIZATION AND SCIENTIFIC MEDIATION
We communicate on social and environmental issues in order to contribute to a better understanding and appropriation of current challenges by all. We help research and civil society actors to highlight their knowledge, make it visible and accessible to all. Depending on the objective, we propose adapted formats, whether written, audio or audio-visual.
PROFESSIONAL TRAINING AND SUPPORT
We design training programs that support the missions carried out by our clients. We accompany them towards a transformation of their practices and in the promotion of their own internally created knowledge.
We teach in universities and schools of higher education in order to share our scientific knowledge and skills. Our presentations focus on contemporary social and environmental issues and on our field work methods.
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
We carry out our own field research to bring our scientific viewpoint to societal issues. These projects allow us to perfect our methodologies and to remain connected to the realities of the field. We publish our results in multiple formats targeting the general public.
