A day rich in debates and exchanges of ideas
« I am pleased with the holding of the first TTI.5 Forum. One year after the establishment of the Institute, the success of this event encourages us more than ever to continue our mission of education and information with the goal of a low-carbon transition. »
Nadia Maïzi, Director of TTI.5 and co-author of the 6th IPCC report
This day of idea exchange was organized in three parts. The first part, dedicated to “Controversies,” featured the awarding of the TTI.5 Environmental Controversy Prize to a group of 3rd-year students in the Civil Engineering program at Mines Paris – PSL, who worked on the controversy project “Beets and Neonicotinoids: to bee or not to beet?” brilliantly presented by Maud Roux-Salembien. This prize was presented by Madeleine Akrich, responsible for the “Description of Controversies” course, and handed over by Matthieu Mazière, Director of the Civil Engineering program at Mines Paris – PSL.
The second part was dedicated to “Solutions.” Luc Teerlinck, Head of Innovation and Business Model Transformation at Decathlon, presented the equipment rental project “We Play Circular,” a model that encourages the sports retailer to move towards higher quality and more sustainable products. Franck Aggeri, Professor at Mines Paris – PSL, presented his latest essay: “L’Innovation, mais pour quoi faire? Essai sur un mythe économique, social et managérial” (Innovation, but for what? Essay on an economic, social, and managerial myth). A reflection on the imperative of innovation.
The third segment provided an opportunity to reflect on the “Security Challenges of Climate Change.” Sofia Kabbej, Researcher in the Climate, Energy, and Security Division of IRIS (Institute of International and Strategic Relations), dedicated her presentation to the risks associated with geoengineering, which involves human-induced modification of the climate to mitigate the effects of climate change. David Leishman, Agriculture Advisor at the Embassy of the United States in France, highlighted the importance of diverse actors involved in agricultural transition. Gonéri Le Cozannet, Researcher in the Coastal Risks and Climate Change Unit at BRGM and co-author of the 6th IPCC report, detailed the conflict risks and adaptations to climate change discussed in the 6th IPCC report. Katrin Millock, CNRS Research Director and Professor at Paris School of Economics, focused on the issue of population displacement.
Lastly, Cédric Denis-Rémis, Vice President of Development and Innovation at Université PSL, and Marie Roussie, Research Engineer, presented two scenarios stemming from the work of the Université PSL team in the Defense Red Team.
This day was moderated by Sébastien Joannès, Senior Research Fellow at Mines Paris – PSL.
