Appel à contribution - Ouvrage collectif sur les effets rebonds

Effets rebonds : quels défis scientifiques et opérationnels pour la transition socio-écologique ?
Le caractère évolutif et pluriel du concept rend la nature de l’effet rebond difficile à appréhender et à délimiter. À ce jour, plusieurs questions peuvent se poser : un effet rebond ne résulte-t-il qu’en des conséquences dommageables relatives aux enjeux environnementaux ? ou ces conséquences peuvent-elles aussi être bénéfiques et créatrices de valeur ? quel est le lien entre effet rebond et impact socio-écologique ? comment est-il intégré aux démarches de conception ?

Autant de questions auxquelles l’ouvrage que nous projetons de publier tentera de répondre. Pour en savoir plus, nous vous invitons à participer et voir l'appel en cliquant ici

Nuit Européenne de chercheur.e.s

As part of the European Researchers' Night 2022, Melissa ESCOBAR participated in the program " Parcours croisés à la Fabuleuse Cantine à Saint Etienne " with Moan Besson and Clémence PETIT, on the theme "research and environmental issues". The exchange is recorded and would be anchored in the national framework of Radio Campus, partner of the European Researchers' Night.

Moan BESSON, president of Radio Campus Saint-Étienne, Clémence PETIT, assistant professor at the School of Mines St-Etienne and Melissa ESCOBAR, doctoral student from our D-TECHNOSS project, had a very interesting discussions. It focused on the importance of developing innovative processes for the production of technical ceramics while taking into account ecological issues and energy consumption. The concept of strong sustainability was mentioned as a theoretical approach that gives priority to the environment and that questions our modes of production and consumption.

Melissa tells us about her doctoral project.

La Terre ne sera bientôt plus livable ?

During the European Researchers' Night 2022, Melissa presented us with the essentials of her doctoral work. The role of design sciences is very important if we want a fair and equitable future respecting the limits of our planet.

Dissemination & exploitation

Nuit Européenne de chercheur.e.s 2022

During the "European Researchers' Night 2022" Melissa had two interventions with college students.

Disseminating our research project to the public is a priority. Melissa had the opportunity to perform twice in front of college students. The first was a "Make Your Games" evening. The aim was to increase public awareness of the climate catastrophe and its anthropogenic cause. Melissa used the "La fresque du Climat" tool on the Quiz version of her. The second intervention was carried out with students from Jules Valles College where Melissa presented her research work in order to raise awareness about the current climate catastrophe.

WEBINAR | Rebound effects

The S.mart network organized last November 10, 2022 from 12:15 p.m. to 1:45 p.m. the webinar entitled "Rebound effects: what are the scientific and operational challenges for the socio-ecological transition?"
This edition was animated and presented by:
Michal Kozderka – UNISTRA
Emmanuel Caillaud – CNAM
Lou-Lyne Leconte – member of D-TECHNOSS, PhD student URCA/UTT
Tatiana Reyes – member of D-TECHNOSS, UTT
Jean-Claude Boldrini – Nantes University

In this webinar, the evolutionary and plural nature of the concept is analyzed in order to present clues for reflection on its uptake and delimitation. Currently, there are several questions on the subject: Does a rebound effect only bring harmful consequences related to environmental issues? Or can these consequences also be beneficial and create value? What is the link between the rebound effect and the socio-ecological impact? How is it integrated into the design process? Is it necessarily unpredictable or can it be apprehended through models, methods, assessment tools or simulation? Should it be approached in a multidisciplinary or transdisciplinary way?

Within the D-TECHNOSS project, the concept of rebound effects is an important element to consider in the doctoral works of Lou-Lyne and Melissa. However, we believe that the study of this concept in other disciplines will allow a better understanding of all its implications.

Doctoriales 2022

The non-academic world (companies, local and regional authorities) offers PhDs numerous opportunities to develop their career.

Our doctoral student Lou-Lyne had the opportunity to participate in the 2022 Doctoral Programs organized by the UTT and the URCA. The event took place from October 24 to 27, 2022 at the Domaine de la Forêt d'Orient. During the event, a series of training courses related to the creation of startups were carried out (creativity, innovation, market research, intellectual property, budget, communication, technical feasibility, environmental impact, etc.). During 3.5 days the participants got acquainted with the world of entrepreneurship.

This event was an opportunity for Lou-Lyne to develop new softskills that can be valued in future job interviews. It was also a time for the creation of professional networks for integration into the socioeconomic world.

The EURAM 2022 doctoral colloquium was held on June 13 and 14, 2022 as a part of the EURAM international conference ““Leading the Digital Transformation” 2022.

With the article “Understanding of consumers’ behaviourstowards ecodesigned products and services”, Lou-Lyne presented a general description of his doctoral thesis whose objective is to understand consumer behavior towards eco-designed products and services. In his presentation, Lou-Lyne exposed the contributions of the scientific community on the notions of consumer, sustainable development, sustainability strong and ecodesign, as well as their interrelationships, to better understand the consumer implications of sustainable development and ecodesign approaches. Lou-Lyne finally proposes a model detailing the expected empirical results of the research.

This was an opportunity for Lou-Lyne to showcase his research and scholarly mission to different audiences; as well as connecting with an international network of academics and other beneficiaries and users of its research.

Doctoral School 2022 "Eco-design of Complex Systems

The 9th edition of the EcoSD doctoral training "Eco-design of complex systems", or EcoDoCS'2022. took place from Monday 10 to Friday 14 October 2022 on the CentraleSupélec campus (Gif-sur-Yvette). It is organized by EcoSD via CentraleSupélec, AgroParisTech and ISAE-Supméca, financed by EcoSD and S.mart, and supported by the Design Society.


The work of our doctoral student Melissa ESCOBAR on the development of design models for strong sustainability requires specific knowledge and skills. The purpose of this training was to help participants define the scientific and industrial issues of the eco-design of complex systems (products, services, factories, socio-technical systems) and to present practical solutions for modeling, simulating, optimizing and making decisions in conception phase. It alternates theory and practice on numerous case studies or workshops.

Melissa had the opportunity to reflect and discuss her own thesis work with the other participants. This training was also an opportunity to build collaborative links with other people interested in ecological issues and socio-ecological transitions.

Meeting of the D-TECHNOSS Team in DIJON

Atelier 2022 Juin
Atelier 2022 Juin
On June 24, 2022, in the city of Dijon, the D-TECHNOSS team held its seminar and reflection workshop on strong sustainability.


The seminar had as its central topic of discussion the definition of the concept of strong sustainability. The first part of our meeting was focused on analyzing the concept of strong sustainability. Strong sustainability is the main axis of our project and it is necessary to be able to concretize the way to make its definition operable.

The second part of our seminar focused on the advancement of our two PhD students, Lou-Lyne LECONTE and Melissa ESCOBAR. They presented us with their first results and their work plan for the coming months. Articulating two investigations from the human sciences and engineering in the D-TECHNOSS project allows a complete vision of the problem to be studied.

3ème Journée Marketing et Développement durable

On December 9, 2021, the 3ème Journée Marketing et Développement durable (JMDD) took place in Troyes in connection with the thematic interest group (GIT) of the French Marketing Association AFM and the Institute of Services and Industries of the Future of Troyes ISIFT . Lou-Lyne LECONTE, a doctoral student within the D-TECHNOSS project, presented a first part of the results of her doctoral thesis.

With the presentation entitled "CONSUMERS AND ECODESIGN: A LITERATURE REVIEW", Lou-Lyne addresses the relationships between consumers, sustainable development and ecodesign. This synthesis reveals the difficulties of definition and the limits inherent to sustainable development and ecodesign and, therefore, raises the need to rethink these notions. In her presentation, Lou-Lyne mentions that consumer expectations illustrate a growing concern for sustainable development. However, the role of the consumer in the proper use of eco-designed products and services does not seem to benefit from the necessary consideration during the design phase, thus generating rebound effects that can destroy the potential environmental gains achieved.
