Societal and economic

par GALLITRE Laurence - 7 mai 2012

The LTDS studies technico-economic issues , for example in the fields of transportation, energy, or information storage.
 
We understand, explain, innovate, and elaborate our knowledge and know-how so as to :
 
  • Create knowledge and understanding of fundamental mechanisms progress ;
  • Respond to technological problems , anticipate evolutions and support industrial development ;  ; 
  • Respond to societal expectations and needs, such as health or environment protection.
 
The LTDS contributes to the development of interface science..
 
As such it includes humanities and social sciences as a research topic.
The LTDS scientific project needs to meet four missions essential to our trustees :
  • Research ;
  • Training ;
  • Development ;
  • Innovation.
The rapid and profound evolutions of the socio-economic world bring us to deal with them simultaneously. At the beginning of the 21st century, new responsibilities resulting from the great challenges facing society are vested in the doctor-engineer.

 

A researcher, in particular in the field of engineering sciences, cannot limit his mission to the sole production of knowledge. He must be a conscious agent of societal challenges and important topics such as health, transportation, resource management, energy, and housing. It is necessary for us to show that the future of our societies will be in knowledge and innovation related to sustainable development.
