The Boutique des Sciences (BdS) Occitanie is an incubator for collaborative and citizen-based research projects. Its mission is to facilitate synergies between the worlds of research, higher education and civil society (associations, cooperatives, professional organisations, collectives, local authorities, etc.) in order to co-construct research issues and collaborative projects.

The BdS Occitanie is currently supporting the participatory setting up of a research project on peasant agro-ecology, involving in particular a group of associations from Occitanie and CIRAD researchers. This group defines itself through a common vision of what peasant agroecology is. It is looking at its development levers in the region, with a 30-year perspective. Based on this questioning, the challenge today is to identify more precise questions to be addressed by research.

In order to identify common research questions and, eventually, a research project, multi-actor workshops are organised. At the same time, master’s degree courses are implemented on subjects requiring further study and/or on actions that can boost co-construction actions. These internships are part of the actions that Agropolis Fondation finances in its support to the emergence of the BoS.
