Research projects

Coordinator of the ACIDES-Sud project

I am currently heading a research project awarded to Universités Paris 5 and Paris 13 (both part of « Sorbonne Paris Cité » University). This project involves researchers from both these universities, as well as reasearchers from Universités Paris 1, Paris 7 and Universidad de Buenos Aires.

This programmes aims to analyse the dynamics of Higher education transformations and in particular the  globalisation dynamics, focusing on both demand side (including students mobility) and supply side (evolution of the sector).
