This morning's event focused on research engineers in the broadest sense, bringing together a wide range of profiles of specialists in research methods to address issues central to these professions. What does it mean to be an engineer? How do we deal with technical-scientific hybridity? How can the practices of sometimes isolated engineers be supported and enhanced?

After an introduction by Sergei Guriev, Director of Education and Research at Sciences Po, and Marko Tocilovac, Director of Structuring Projects at Université Paris Cité, a brief presentation of the progress made on the RésIn project announced the development of the directory of research engineers that we will be launching shortly.

The round table chaired by Robin de Mourat (médialab, Sciences Po) addressed the central issues of the project thanks to 5 specialists: 

  • Françoise Waquet, Historian of Science, Emeritus Research Director CNRS ;
  • Alina Danciu, Research Engineer and Head of the Documentation-Diffusion Team at the Centre de données socio-politiques (UAR Sciences Po/CNRS) ; 
  • Mathieu Jacomy, Senior Lecturer and Research Engineer (Techno-Anthropology Lab, Copenhagen) ;
  • Damien Cartron, CNRS research engineer, sociologist at the Centre Maurice Halbwachs, and co-founder of the mate-shs network;
  • Ronan Ysebaert, CNRS Research Engineer, Centre for Spatial Analysis and Geovisualisation (UAR Univ. Paris Cité/CNRS).
