The work carried out within the Sustainable Development, Environment, and Energy axis addresses the various dimensions of sustainable development. They focus on various topics: economic analysis of environmental and energy transitions; transformations that they imply in the organization and objectives of companies, innovation, territorial development, and the functioning of the labor market. The research undertakes in this group also consider how environmental changes interplay with other major transitions (demographic, digital, food) that deeply affect economies. Members are also interested in the consequences of environmental, energy, and ethical constraints on the behavior of economic agents and the definition of public policies.
Research themes developed by the DDEE axis
Research conducted by members of the axis falls into four main areas:
Several members of the DDEE axis have an essential involvement in the animation and organization of the PREDIR S2CH platform (Experimental Research Platform on Decisions, Interactions and Risks / Federation of Social Sciences Research for Human Behaviors). This platform makes it possible to collect behavioural and biological data useful for the study of individual and collective behaviour. It is accessible to researchers and doctoral students from all member laboratories of the S2CH Federation, sharing the same experimental methodology in the laboratory and from the following disciplines: economics, management, linguistics, social and cognitive psychology, and neurosciences.
Promotion of research
Teacher-researchers and researchers from the DDEE axis lead and participate in several regular scientific events:
The DDEE axis also organizes numerous conferences and study days: Decompartmentalize policies, take the turn in ecological transition – Reflection from the photovoltaic sector and What future for the industry in metropolitan areas? In conjunction with the Chaire Ville, Industrie et Transition Ecologique; The environment and health in maritime cities; Changing the era: global warming and finance; Interdisciplinary workshop on the psychological determinants of eating behaviour; Growth, environment, and population, Etc.
They also participate in the animation of several scientific journals (International Economics; Revue d’Économie Industrielle; Revue Internationale PME; Etc.) and are active in learned societies or associations of economists (French Association of Environmental and Resource Economists (FAERE). ), the French Association of Economic Sciences (AFSE), Alliance for Research on Discrimination.
Interactions with the economic and social environment
Several members of the DDEE axis have an activity of scientific advice or expertise in national and international institutions (Chair in Climate Economics, Chair in Demographic Transitions Economic Transitions, CEPII, INED, OECD, ILO, etc.).
The researchers of the axis also have an essential contractual research activity, particularly in the field of companies and local development. These topics have enabled EconomiX to sign partnership agreements with Bpifrance, the National Agency for the Cohesion of the Territories, France Stratégie, the Institute for Research of the Caisse des Dépôts, etc.
They regularly appear in the media, whether written (Le Monde, Les Echos, La Tribune, Alternatives Économique, Liberation, etc.), radio (France Culture, France Inter, RFI, etc.) or television (France 5, France 24, Arte, …).
The links established with companies and various institutions allow the financing (CIFRE and other types of contracts) of numerous theses each year.
The members of the DDEE axis are mainly involved in three master’s mentions.
The mention of master’s degree in Environment, Energy, and Transport Economics (EEET) aims to offer, through the M1 then five possible M2 courses (environment, energy, modelling-prospective, food, and transport) a training course dealing with all economic questions on energy, climate, ecological, environmental, agro-food and mobility challenges.

The mention of a master’s degree in Economic Analysis and Policy (APE) provides training in behavioral economics and trains economist analysts in behavioural data. His M2 course in Applied Behavioural Economics (ECA) combines several complementary skills: mastery of software and computer languages essential for data processing and analyzing and using the data collected from economic models.

The mention of a master’s degree in Innovation, Business, Society (IES) trains you to master the data collection-processing-valuation chain based on data science in the specific context of economic and financial data. It includes a Data Science for Social Sciences (D3S) course open to recruitment in M1 and a specific course for the Master in Engineering (CMI-D3S) course as a continuation of the CMI-D3S license course as part of engineering training accredited by the network Figure.
