Lucile Ottolini

Independent researcher and consultant

Lucile Ottolini has been working since January 2017 on her PhD, under the direction of Pierre-Benoît Joly, on the opening of research bodies to civil society. As a clinical psychologist who graduated in 2013 at the UFR d’Études Psychanalytiques de Paris 7, questions around modern-day professional practice at psychiatric institutions led her to spend more than three years working for social movements around the question of relationships to knowledge, and their institutional dimensions in particular.

Her thesis project is an extension of this career path and its multiple experiences which are interrelating with one another. This research is co-funded by the Institut National de l’Environnement et des Risques Industriels (INERIS), which has itself undertaken an institutional process to open up to civil society over the past several years.

One of the aims of Lucile Ottolini’s thesis is to frame the actions of several French and European research institutions in this field within a socio-historic perspective. The experience of the INERIS will be central to this research and will be analysed through a case study. Another goal objective be to formulate elements of the institutional perspective in order to structure the opening to society.
