Inclusive Sustainability

Territories in Transition Chair, towards new services for citizens

The goal of this multi-partner Chair is to produce the necessary knowledge to imagine, analyze, test and disseminate new measures to support a transition towards sustainable and inclusive living spaces.
Certain territories, including those in the Grenoble region, demonstrate a desire to adapt existing models, establishing new modes of organization that place the citizen at the heart of reflection and action. With this objective in mind, the Chair is developing four lines of work, in close collaboration with the research teams at GEM.

Working Areas

New eco-responsible behaviors
Thanks to the creation of a Panel of several thousand inhabitants of the Grenoble metropolitan area, researchers can test the impact of new solutions and services on citizen behavior. Several surveys have already been conducted regarding mobility, health, waste,etc.
New organizational models
Based on field surveys, researchers are developing innovative organizational models that make it possible to provide a new range of services within the territory. This work is currently focused on the transformation of homecare provision, seeking to renew existing local services.
New methods for developing innovative projects
GEM has developed an experiential platform that allows the Chair's partners to imagine, test on a small scale, validate and develop new practices, particularly those linked to the contribution of digital technology, and to understand their jobs in a different way.
The first experiential device supported by the Chair is the Fabularium, a tool for showcasing and telling the story of "microadventures" in our territory.
Transition of Mountain Territories chapter
As of summer 2020, the Chair has opened a Transition of Mountain Territories chapter. With the support of the Cluster Montagne, which has joined the Chair, the chapter aims to develop animation and collective reflection tools relevant to mountain territories to accelerate the transition.
These tools will concern three themes :
-Mountain tourism business models
-Radical / disruptive foresight


Our partners, comprising public and private actors, social and solidarity economy organizations, and local associations, are rooted locally in the Grenoble region.
