Our presentation on 14 April 2022 – given on the occasion of an invitation to the “Midis du Ministère de l’Enseignement Supérieur de la Recherche et de l’Innovation (MESRI)” – provided an opportunity to present the results of several years of work in the field of geography of science, focusing on:

  • the global scientific production and cooperation dynamics;
  • the links between scientific production and research staff;
  • and the different spatialization logics of research activities.

The governance mechanisms of scientific activity were addressed through two approaches: on the one hand, the development of research policies likely to influence the products of science, and on the other hand, the implementation of instruments that can facilitate the establishment of cooperation between different regions, countries and continents.
