Pluralité des connaissances scientifques et intervention publique.

Le projet EBP-BIOSOC.

Le projet "Validité des connaissances scientifiques et intervention publique: le cas de l'agriculture dans le développement durable" (acronyme: EBP-BIOSOC) vise à analyser la façon dont la validité empirique des connaissances scientifiques disponibles est évaluée et prise en compte dans l’intervention publique mettant en jeu les relations agriculture / conservation de la biodiversité / cohésion économique. La recherche s'appuie sur des tests d'hypothèse réalisés dans trois contextes politiques différents (France, Brésil, Afrique du Sud). Elle met en jeu des connaissances issues des sciences sociales, des sciences bio-techniques, de l’écologie et de la philosophie des sciences. Ce programme bénéficie d'un financement de l'Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) dans l'appel d'offre Agriculture et Développement Durable (ADD).
