In a context of global change, the link between the LabEx research and the concerns of society was established through two networks.
At the basin scale of the Mediterranean sea
Medecc is a network of scientists aiming at delivering an improved scientific assessment of climate change and its impacts in the Mediterranean Basin. Medecc is mirroring at the Mediterranean scale the synthesis efforts of the GIEC at the global scale.
At the regional scale of Provence-Alpes-Côtes d’Azur
Grec-Sud is a group of experts that publishes booklets and organises events on environmental and climate change topics in the PACA region for a non-scientific audience, including stakeholders and general public.
"ITEM" takes over
In order to develop environmental interdisciplinary research on the Mediterranean beyond 2020, researchers from the OT-Med consortium have joined the ITEM Institute: the Mediteranean Institute for the Environmental Transition.
