Scientific Interest Group 2IF

" Innovation, Interdisciplinarity,
Formation "


A federative, inter-institutional and interdisciplinary structure entitled Scientific Interest Group 2iF (Innovation, Interdisciplinarity, Formation) was created in 2018.

This structure, supported by l'Université de Paris  (previously University Paris Descartes)Its mission is to facilitate the identification, federation and mobilization of researchers, groups and research teams working in France and abroad on innovation strategies in training and related phenomena, and on industrialization processes. to and in training and learning modalities.

In particular, it enables the institutions that have or will join it to establish fruitful exchanges of information among themselves, to develop together scientific and educational programmes, possibly to have them carried by this structure, to make their work and achievements known beyond their disciplinary community, to acquire greater national and international visibility and to benefit from the funding and support that institutions are accustomed to giving to federative structures.

This willingness to group together is the result of several years of consultation within the Seminar Industrialization of Training. It is also the result of exchanges initiated several months ago with colleagues interested in this proposed structure, some of whom have already expressed the wish to be associated with its creation.

Ongoing and planned actions

Les initiatives du Gis vont, en fonction  des moyens disponibles, des projets les plus modestes aux actions les plus audacieuses.

Four types of resources are more specifically solicited:

  • Contribution of Gis member units (our policy is to minimize their core contribution and to solicit their financial commitment on a case-by-case basis for operations in which they would participate);
  • Financing by the supervisory bodies (ministries, local authorities) and from the ANR ;
  • Patronage
  • Voluntary commitment of the leaders and executives of the Gis.
