The Risk Institute, PARN and IRMA are organising their Partners' Day at the Maison du doctorat Jean Kuntzmann on Thursday 19 September 2024 from 9am to 5pm on the theme of citizen data for risk prevention. Following on from last year's theme on tools and systems for anticipating risks in the field, this year we will be looking at the issue from the angle of dialogue and the uses of citizen data between scientists, public authorities, economic players and citizens. This seminar in French is aimed at the scientific community and all the local players involved in risk prevention.


Participation is free and open to all upon registration.

Deadline: Monday, September 9th, 2024

For several years now, citizens have been taking an increasingly active role in their environment and the places where they live, in relation to risk issues.
In some cases, groups are spontaneously organising themselves and challenging industries or local authorities, producing data that can help to change management methods. While these citizens' groups usually emerge during a crisis, they can also become players in risk management over the long term.
In other cases, it is the scientific and technical community that calls on citizens for observation and data feedback, to feed into ongoing research or development of tools.
In both cases, various intermediary bodies may be involved (associations, trade unions, professional bodies, etc.).

How can we engage with these emerging players? How can we use the dynamics of participatory science upstream of crises and organise prevention? How can we set up crisis management systems that include citizens?
How can we manage conflicts of interest and responsibilities? How can citizens, experts and politicians use the data produced to support public authorities?

During the day, we will be presenting some existing initiatives for dialogue between scientists, managers and citizens, and we will be discussing the impact of these dynamics on risk management.
The aim will also be to identify the benefits of citizen participation for research and local authorities. In particular, we will be looking at the multi-disciplinary nature of these participatory science approaches (which can involve interaction between sociology, ergonomics, life and earth sciences, engineering, etc.) and the use of this citizen data in the public policy-making process.



This programme is being consolidated and may be subjected to slight modifications in the coming weeks.
