For more than ten years, the GIS "Réseau National des Systèmes Complexes" (RNSC) has been structuring the complex systems community across France through geographical (Ile de France, Rhône-Alpes, Toulouse) and thematic networks. A similar initiative has been envisaged in Montpellier and now in the Occitanie region. To this end, it was decided to make an inventory of regional research on complex systems in the fields of biology, environment, agronomy and land management and to make it available through an Agropolis Dossier.
This dossier will contribute to structuring, making visible and promoting the skills of the Occitanie scientific community working on the theme of "Complex Systems". This issue will present the issues and challenges related to this theme as well as the way in which regional actors contribute to meeting them through examples of cutting-edge scientific advances, major innovations, collaborations, infrastructures, original training courses, etc.
Identification of the thematic perimeter and the regional research actors involved
Call for contributions from the identified actors
Selection and commissioning of articles
Writing of articles and editing
Planned actions :
Layout of the document (French version)
Printing of the French file
Editing of the English version
Layout and printing (English version)
