The Loire Valley MSH’s scientific policy is based on the logic of transversal scientific programmes or, more specifically, research programmes based on the activities of the researchers working for the teams involved.
The MSH steering committee defined five thematic directions for the 2018-2022 contractual period based on each team’s specific scientific characteristics and skills. These orientations will then be recomposed into six axes for the 2024-2028 contractual period in order to open up to disciplines and laboratories that are less present and to promote transversality, interdisciplinarity and intersectorality.
The aim is to develop network relations in these research fields in the Centre Val de Loire Region and within the framework of the National Houses of Human Sciences Network. Part of the Loire Valley MSH’s activities involves providing innovative digital services for researchers.
There are varied actions in all of these research themes such as responses to calls for proposals, seminars, conferences, publications, etc.
