Espèces, milieux, usages : une enquête interdisciplinaire sur les recompositions suscitées par l’arrivée de l’éolien en mer
PhD supervisors: Alain Nadaï (CIRED) and Olivier Labussière (UMR Pacte – Université de Grenoble)
The arrival of offshore wind energy in France is a major challenge for climate-energy policy in the decades to come. The implementation of this policy will lead to significant changes in marine environments, territories and landscapes. It questions the future of species, ecosystems and uses of the sea, still little understood by science.
This thesis project aims to: (i) to contribute to build an interdisciplinary approach of a research theme at the crossroads of species, environment and sea uses in order to withdraw a more systemic analysis of the effects of the arrival of offshore wind energy; (ii) to contribute to open to local actors the production of science on the occasion of changes and debates induced by the arrival of offshore wind energy.
In addition to stabilized methods of social sciences, this thesis will mobilize an art-science approach aiming at giving forms to these emerging stakes to make them shareable and debatable. It is part of the program ‘Monitoring offshore wind turbines’ (2022-2026) funded by Ademe, and is linked to the work of a group of researchers in social sciences, environment and engineering.
