On the occasion of the workshop “L’argent de la science” organised by the “Opération Mondes Scientifiques” of the research organism “Structuration des Mondes Sociaux”, we presented a first exploratory work based on the contents of the database ofresearch projects funded by the French National Agency of Research since 2010. This presentation was entitled: “Les données de financement de la recherche: cartographies et dynamiques spatiales”.
