Patrick Steyaert

Engineer at INRAE

Patrick Steyaert’s research aims to understand and support agricultural change processes in the field of public environmental policy (water, wild and domesticated biodiversity). It more specifically focuses on analysing ways in which knowledge is mobilized and produced as a part of the accompaniment of these processes, in particular through the analysis of intermediation activities. In this context, he carries out out joint research projects and teaches several courses (at AgroParisTech, the Université de La Rochelle, and the Université de Liège).
