Who are we ?
Since January 2007, Fire (FR-3020), the Federation Ile-de-France for Research on the Environnement, has been aiming to promote interdisciplinary research in environnemental sciences. It federal project focuses studies research relating to continental surfaces connecting with human activities (catchment areas and large watersheds. living area, hydrographic network, farm plot and forest, small agricultural region, urban and rural landscapes).
Federations for Research play a key role of institutional landscape managed according to ‘top down’approach. They are conductive to interdisciplinarity and informal collaborations between organizations (inter Osu, Inter Labex). They serve as a source of inventive proposals based on voluntary and collaborative approach.
