    The EPOG+ pro­gramme has been award­ed in June 2022 a “Unesco chair”.

    The chair is coor­di­nat­ed by David Flach­er at the Uni­ver­sité de tech­nolo­gie de Com­piègne (UTC). It has been cre­at­ed in 2022 with the sup­port of the Com­mis­sion nationale française pour l’Unesco.

    Main objec­tives of the projectThe EPOG-Unesco chair aims to devel­op world­class, mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary and inclu­sive train­ing and research on eco­log­i­cal, socio-eco­nom­ic and dig­i­tal tran­si­tions, with a par­tic­u­lar empha­sis on sus­tain­abil­i­ty and the link between sci­ence and soci­ety.

    In par­tic­u­lar, the aim is to train experts capa­ble of (i) design­ing and effec­tive­ly man­ag­ing tran­si­tion process­es towards sus­tain­able socio-eco­nom­ic mod­els, but also (ii) estab­lish­ing a con­struc­tive dia­logue between experts from dif­fer­ent con­ti­nents as well as between experts, pub­lic deci­sion-mak­ers and cit­i­zens.

    The chair devel­ops the orig­i­nal con­cept of “glob­al tran­si­tion”, con­ceived both as (i) a geo­graph­i­cal­ly sit­u­at­ed process involv­ing all ter­ri­to­ries and con­ti­nents in a mul­ti-scale per­spec­tive (from local to glob­al), and (ii) a sys­temic process that makes it pos­si­ble to rethink eco­nom­ic and social poli­cies — and in par­tic­u­lar, those relat­ed to social inclu­sion — in coher­ence with the per­spec­tive of the eco­log­i­cal tran­si­tion. This con­cept will be devel­oped in order to meet the chal­lenges posed by inequal­i­ties, eco­log­i­cal dis­rup­tions, but also the fragili­ty of our soci­eties, evi­dent since the coro­n­avirus crisis.
    Activ­i­tiesThe activ­i­ties of the EPOG-Unesco chair are cur­rent­ly most­ly relat­ed to those of the EPOG+ Eras­mus Mundus Joint Mas­ter Degree. Among the lat­est activ­i­ties:
    - the Eco­log­i­cal chal­lenges from a mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary per­spec­tive (also avail­able in video replay)
    - the Joint sem­i­nars (also avail­able in video replay)
    - the EPOG con­fer­ence
    - the Pol­i­cy briefs series

    Per­spec­tivesThe activ­i­ties will devel­op beyond this EPOG+ pro­gramme, in par­tic­u­lar through doc­tor­al and research pro­grammes. Projects of coop­er­a­tion with aca­d­e­m­ic and non-aca­d­e­m­ic actors will also be developed.
