Bruno Turnheim

Chercheur, INRAE

Bruno Turnheim concentre ses recherches sur les processus d’innovation dans le contexte de transitions socio-techniques, notamment liées aux ‘grands défis sociétaux’. Chargé de Recherche INRAE au LISIS, il est aussi Honorary Research Fellow au Manchester Institute of Innovation Research (MIoIR). Depuis 2016, il est membre du comité de pilotage du Sustainability Transition Research Network (STRN), le réseau international de recherche sur les études de transitions, au sein duquel il anime un groupe sur le soutien aux politiques publiques en la matière.

Depuis 2020, il pilote le projet de recherche WAYS-OUT, financé par l’ANR, portant sur le phénomène de déstabilisation et les modalités de gouvernance de la discontinuation de systèmes socio-techniques établis.

Principaux thèmes de recherche :
– les processus de déstabilisation des régimes établis dans le cadre de transitions socio-techniques
– l’étude de transitions socio-techniques historiques dans les domaines de l’énergie, de la mobilité et de l’alimentation
– l’émergence et le cadrage de défis sociétaux et leur influence sur les processus de transitions
– l’expérimentation socio-technique et les processus d’imbrication (embedding) sociétale
– l’expérimentation dans le cadre des la gouvernance du climat
– les questions d’interdisciplinarité pour l’exploration de ‘sentiers’ (pathways) de transitions
– les interfaces entre sciences et politiques publiques dans le cadre des stratégies de transitions durables
