“Innovative Societies” is a new programme and one of the three cross-cutting programmes of the ANR.
This programme intends to foster cooperation and confrontation of the approaches of the disciplines of the humanities and social sciences and issues raised by the other scientific disciplines and by technological development. It particularly aims to strengthen research partnership between firms and teams of the social sciences and humanities. One of its objectives is to have a systematic interdisciplinary approach between laboratories and firms in various thematic fields (ICST, nanotechnologies, materials, energy, transport, housing, environment, food and agricultural production, industrial processes, health, etc.) and and social sciences and humanities which are interested in individual and social behaviour, and in economic models.
The programme is open to all scientific disciplines, provided that consortia include at least one SSH team (public or private sector). Partnerships with businesses, public authorities, associations or organizations, are encouraged.
The scientific objectives of the programme are to:
Main lines of investigation:
Innovations and representations
Innovations, social changes and ways of life
Innovations and economic models
Configurations, actors, dynamics
