As a student at the Bordeaux Institute of Technology (formerly a University Bordeaux I component) in the electrical engineering and industrial computing department (in French), Yves Ducq wanted to become a lecturer-researcher. He continued his graduate studies in electronics, electrical engineering and automation then an Advanced Studies Diploma (DEA) "automation and production" and a thesis paired with an instructorship. He became a temporary teaching and research fellow (ATER) then a research engineer and consultant for an industrial management consulting firm. His research specialties cover the modelling of decision systems and performance indicators, a field he is passionate about. Yves Ducq became a lecturer in the Physics Department in 2002. Appointed university professor at Bordeaux I in 2008, he has since been teaching risk analysis at the Bordeaux Institute of Technology and is in charge of "quality" there. Among other things, he participated in the point of contact project and the implementation of the Marianne standard for the quality of user support service provided at the university library of science and technology.

Within the framework of the project for the new University of Bordeaux, Yves Ducq coordinated the "Documentation" committee with the director of documentation. After the merger, in April 2014, Yves Ducq was naturally appointed University of Bordeaux "documentation mission officer" by Manuel Tunon de Lara with the objective of politically supporting and coordinating projects related to open access, bibliometrics for researchers, as well as library training and user support.
In 2015 he took responsibility for the merger project of the 3 University Institutes of Technology. In January 2016, Bordeaux IUT was created. In 2018, Manuel Tunon de Lara appointed him Vice-President in charge of the continuous improvement process.
At the same time, he participated in drawing up the roadmap for the university's open science policy.

Yves Ducq was appointed mission officer for Documentation and open science in February 2022 by Dean Lewis, President of the University of Bordeaux.

My new mission covers documentation as a whole and is also aimed at implementing and developing the five pillars of the open science roadmap. The University of Bordeaux must remain at the forefront in this crucial area to increase the university's visibility and accelerate its research.
