The Workshops making up the Unit provide links between practitioners and researchers from various disciplines by contributing to the problematisation of major questions. The Workshops also promote and exploit the data that they generate.
The Metropolis Workshop Unit is comprised of 5 workshops:
3 Workshops dedicated to research:
Workshop 1: Urban transformations, daily lives, uses, manufacture
Workshop 2: Environments, territories, societies
Workshop 3: Possible worlds, eco-technologies, social and economic evolutions
These research workshops are designed cumulatively with a view to providing an opportunity for the mutual appropriation of experimentation and knowledge.
1 Workshop dedicated to training:
Workshop 4: Training programmes and experimental approaches to teaching
This workshop is dedicated to two aspects of training: the organization and mutualization of training programmes, and experimentation and innovation.
1 Workshop dedicated to organising public discussion and debate:
Workshop 5: Public discussion and debates
The objective of this workshop is to invite debate about the research carried out by researchers and practitioners in the IMU community.
The Metropolis Workshop Unit will be based in La Résidence.
