candidates should propose original research projects on specific issues
that relate to public health, biomedicine, agricultural sciences, food
security, climate change, biodiversity, environmental questions, ICT,
“big data” and internet, historical and social construction of
technologies, risk and regulation, development and research policies,
global distribution of knowledge, intellectual and property rights and
global commons, circulation of knowledge, construction of public
research policies, multilevel governance of science and technology,
knowledge and local development, regimes of regulations and production
of sciences and innovation in society.
