Our Research Council

The Research Council of  the Campus de la Transition

As an academic enterprise, the Campus de la Transition seeks to be immersed in the current academic debates in matters of ecological transition and its related disciplines. Consequently, as well as our high-profile professors, our research council allows the Campus to be in touch with the cutting edge occurrences of the academic sphere.  In their bi-annual meetings, our research council shares reflects and discusses the fruits of their research.
