Research areas

The institute’s work is divided into four major topics that are researched by its 42 (permanent and affiliated) lecturer-researchers :
  • Space(s) including cyberspace and outer space;
  • Territory(ies) – research in this area is not limited to the study of territorial authorities, it also includes sociological, economic and heritage aspects;
  • Culture(s) – a relatively broad topic encompassing museums, trademarks and domain names;
  • Communication(s) covers both the methods (electronic communication, networks, infrastructures and electronic platforms) and the contents (audio-visual communication, cinema, e-commerce).

The Spaces research team is augmented by faculty staff and PhD students from the Toulouse Business School, working with the Sirius Chair.
