corse interdisciplinaire

  This is during a three days period that the Interdisciplinary Symposium occured in Corsica organized by the Universty Pascal Paoli.  The objective of the symposium was to show that Interdisciplinarity is necessary to solve the various and complex problems coming up in our society today. The weather change, the food problems, the energy, the information management and handling, the big data analytics, necessitate the collaboration between several disciplines. Unfortunately, working as an academic researcher in an interdisciplinary model of research is not easy. Most of the carreers are based on a single discipline and a very specialized research. Plublishing Interdisciplinary work is often difficult since the academic research journals are very specialized. During the symposium all these aspects were discussed, illustrated by numerous high quality presentaions. Several tracks offered to the participants a brillant illustration of all these problems. The conclusion of the symposium was to underlined the necessity to have the Interdisciplinary research recognized at the same level as specialized ones. The participants asked also to have a following to this symposium and to organized in Corte the same type of meeting  with a two years period. Thanks to the University Pascal Paoli for the many foreign researchers present as invited speakers.  In conclusion we have to thank the Pascla Paoli University of Corsica to develop an Interdisciplinary approach to academic research and to praise the various teams engaged in such a work.

In the track of Information Science, various researches were presented by:   Nathalie FabryChristian Bourret Gheller JessicaPhilippe Clerc,  Amos Amos David and Nadine Ndjok, Dou Henri,  Bernard Dousset and Abdelhamid Chellal,  Duval Philippe and Helène, Enric Escorsa O’CallaghanJean-Baptiste Filippi and Yolanda Perez Finidori, Xuefeng Wang Yun FU and Liliana Mikova, Lucielle et Jean-Louis Rossi Tom Toulouse Dominique Cancellieri Antoine Pieri et Lucie Rossi, Serena Talamoni Bernard Dousset Elisabeth PaoliMarie-Paule Verlaeten.

Innovation et insdustrialisation un enjeu pour la France - Henri Dou - VSE Vie et Sciences de l’Entreprise - Innovation and industrialization a strategic issue for France

décembre 11th, 2016 Posted in Europe, France | Comments Off

 vse logo

C’est dans le numéro spécial 201 de Juin 2016 que le Professeur Henri Dou a présenté une tribune portant sur l’innovation et l’industrialisation, un enjeu pour la France. Dans cette tribune qui fait suite à la tribune présentée par Pierre Batiini dans VSE 200, Henri Dou souligne comment à partir du concept d’innovation  on doit mettre en “ordre de marche” la recherche française pour que celle-ci puisse bénéficier largement aux PME et PMI qui sont génératrices d’emplois. Bien que cette vision soit souvent, dans les faits, à l’encontre des évaluations des chercheurs et des équipes de recherche par les institutions scientifiques françaises, il est des moments historiques où il faut que les institutions financées par l’Etat se mettent au service de la Nation en laissant “de côté” les joutes de puissance et d’avancement de carrières. Nous remercions particulièrement VSE (Vie et Sciences de l’Entreprises) pour permettre la publication  et la diffusion de points de vue critiques qui nous l’espérons apportent “une pierre à l’édifice” en pensant “out of the box” et en s’éloignant du politiquement correct. Par la qualité des articles publiés, VSE est une publication à prendre en compte dans les domaines de l’économie et du développement des entreprises.
