Education and Research projects
In line with our strategy for internationalization, at Rennes 2, our teachers and researchers are involved in a number of important European and global projects. This list is currently being updated but check back soon for more information!
Rennes 2 Led European Projects with Partners
CONVERGES is a COST Action dedicated to riparian ecosystems. COST framework supports collaborative transnational activities under a system of networks of investigators based on open access and bottom-up principles.
Rennes 2 and LIDILE's DECLAME'FLE transnational European cooperation project, seeks to meet the challenge of intercultural dialogue by drawing on contemporary literature on migration and exile (French acronym: LIME) and to offer new open educational resources to teachers of French as a foreign language in initial or continuing education.
Rennes 2 University has joined forces with 5 other European higher education institutions to create eMERGE, a Rennes 2-led consortium which seeks to connect and transform our individual educational and research-based programs for the benefit of our students, researchers and local communities.
Partners of the IREAMS project aim to promote the sharing of knowledge and experiences of integrating children with autism spectrum disorders into both social and academic activities with methods that better support the specificities of each young person.
ARGOS is a European research-creation programme (Europe Creative, 2018-2021) which aims to create an observatory of the creative processes in the field of performing arts and to share them with civil society.
ManaGlobal is an innovative research project (RISE) funded by the EU that seeks to explore with evidence the type of management approaches that are practiced in selected African and Arab countries. The project will show how hybrid and innovative forms of private companies’ government can be shaped by the mobility of people, capital, goods and knowledge.
The EU-funded SandMan project will research the material culture of archaic societies lacking conventional forms of writing, between the end of the Iron Age and the Archaic Period (mid-7th/mid-5th cent. BC). The project will focus on the means of communication between the communities of southern Italy, through semiotic, archaeometric and typological approaches.
Projects in which Rennes 2 is a partnering institution
BIENVENÜE is one of the most important European projects supported by the region of Brittany and to which Rennes 2 University is a partner. With a funding of €5.5M, the project foresees the recruitment of 75 postdoctoral fellows in 8 higher education and research institutions in the region.
This project involves 28 partners who together will work to demonstrate that all territories can implement 'nature-based climate change adaptation solutions' (NBCCAS): "actions to protect, sustainably manage, and restore natural or modified ecosystems to directly address societal challenges, including adaptation to climate change, in an effective and adaptive manner, while ensuring human well-being and generating benefits for biodiversity".
ECHOES addresses a pressing dilemma at the heart of contemporary Europe: the fact that while the history of empires and colonialism undoubtedly constitutes a shared European past, this past remains strangely silent in official narratives about Europe’s ‘heritage’.
ZIKAlliance is a multinational and multi-disciplinary research consortium coordinated by Inserm, the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research. The consortium was awarded €11,9M by the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme in October 2016, to conduct a 36-month cutting-edge research project during the ongoing outbreak of Zika virus infection (ZIKV) in Latin America and the Caribbean.
