The ACT (Augmented university for Campus and world Transition) project aims to transform the University of Bordeaux campus sites into a regional living laboratory and experimental project incubator focusing on environmental, societal and social transitions.
The ACT project is aimed at developing, testing, validating and disseminating new means of tackling major environmental, social and economic transition challenges, thanks to the transformation of the University of Bordeaux campus sites into a vast living laboratory.
The project is broken down into four areas identified within ongoing actions or emerging projects likely to bring communities together:
The project is based on a new interdisciplinary approach combining natural, human and social sciences, drawing on data science and guided by the impact of research it conducts. To this end, it mobilises the multidisciplinary expertise and diversity of the university's scientific community, while also integrating the views of its external stakeholders and citizens in general.
In order to be a key resource for transition both locally and globally, the university must be capable of acting at all levels. To reach its goals, ACT has been organised in sub-programmes:
To achieve its objectives, the University of Bordeaux will be able to rely on its new multidisciplinary approach, as well as on experimental fields located on the different university campus sites, organised on the real scale of the metropolitan area, and dedicated to the major challenges of health and sustainable development. The university's adoption of its new strategic plan of health and sustainable development objectives - which can serve as a reference for public policy and make it possible to educate future decision-makers - rounds out the range of tools available.
This work benefited from a government grant managed by the French National Research Agency (ANR) under the Investments for the Future Programme (PIA) reference ANR-20-IDES-0001.
