The Project "Support for regions in industrial transition"

Commissioning organisationCommission Européenne (DG Regio)

StudentsLucas Chevrier, Camille Gérard, Émilie Huet and Julien Maion from the master Regional and Urban Strategy

Work realised :

In September 2017, the European Commission (DG Regio) launched a call for expressions of interest, or Pilot Action, on the «Industrial Transition». The Centre-Val de Loire, Grand Est and Hauts-de-France regions have been selected for support and a framework for reflection to help cope with economic, social and environmental changes.

The Industrial Transition covers issues related to the preparation of future jobs (in the face of technological change), the development of innovation (and its diffusion), the transition to a low-carbon industry (decarbonization), promoting entrepreneurship (and the private sector) and developing inclusive growth.

The report proposes the study of these themes through the realization and analysis of 43 interviews conducted in the three regions with institutional, academic and economic actors around the following question: in the context of a strengthening of local authorities, what responsibility does local actors have for the “Industrial Transition” in Centre-Val de Loire, Grand-Est and Hauts-de-France?

Report to be published soon

What is a group project?

Called also capstone or workgroup, this highlight of Master's degrees puts the students in professional situation. These have to answer to an order of a private or public structure on an urban or territorial problem (housing environment, planning, economic development, transport, mobility, etc.). 

During 5 to 9 months (according to the course), every team from 4 to 5 students works under the supervision of a tutor, a specialist of the handled question. The project ends in an oral presentation of the students to the commissioning organisation. This period of renditions takes place of the end of May to the middle of June.
