Coopérations scientifiques entre l’Europe et l’Amérique : un nouveau livre (présentation au public le 17 juin 2014)

dimanche 16 mars 2014, par rigas

Il est grand temps d’annoncer la sortie de notre ouvrage sur les collaborations scientifiques entre l’Amérique latine et l’Europe. Travail assez pionnier car finalement personne n’interroge vraiment ceux qui collaborent, à savoir les chercheurs et universitaires.

Ce travail collectif a été mené dans le cadre d’un projet européen improbable (EULAKS) mené dans des conditions pas très satisfaisantes, car réuninissant des équipes très différentes. Malgré cela j’ai été coordinateur d’un Workpackage sur les collaborations scientifiques qui nous a permis de mener un certains nombre de travaux empiriques intéressants. Le premier fruit de ces travaux est un livre publié aux éditions de Archives Contemporaines, dirigé par Jacques Gaillard et moi-même.

L’ouvrage est en anglois ! Si vous êtes sages je vous en ferais le résumé. En attendant lisez la QUATRIEME DE COUVERTURE et acheter le livre Youpi c’est pas cher.

QUATRIEME DE COUVERTURE :

International collaboration has become increasingly important in carrying out research activities. This book, written by a large group of scholars from Europe and Latin America, maps, analyses and discusses research collaboration between the two continents during the last twenty years. The empirical material underlines the richness and the variety of the linkage that bind the two continents, well beyond the simplified views of science, either as the brainchild of global networking or as a result of dependence. The book also develops an innovative methodological approach, combining bibliometric analysis, social surveying, in- depth interviews, and a careful analysis of research programmes and policies. While arguing that the asymmetry of relations that once existed in cooperation has turned into a more equal partnership between the two continents, it deciphers some of the reasons behind this more balanced cooperation. It also challenges the view of science as a global self-organising system through collective action at the level of researchers themselves. On the contrary, the importance of policy, institutions, and previously developed research is highlighted and recognised.
