The Thesis programme of the French Agency for Ecological Transition (ADEME, in French) aims to strengthen research capacities in the agency’s fields of intervention. Since 1992, more than 1,800 students have benefited from this programme and have gone on to work as researchers in public institutions, companies, in the service sector or even to create their own company. Each year, some fifty thesis projects are selected (and co-financed by ADEME), including several in the human and social sciences.
The priority research areas and questions for which thesis projects expected for this 2023 edition are specified within the following four thematic research priorities:
* Preservation and restoration of environments and resources in a context of climate change
* Circular economy with a view to resilience
* Ecological transition of energy and industrial systems for carbon neutrality
* Ecological transition and society
