Céline Verchère holds a doctorate degree in Sociology and graduated in Political Science (France, Grenoble-Alps University). She has worked for over ten years as an expert in the “User Experience (Ux) group" for the CEA (Commissariat à l’Énergie Atomique et aux Énergies Alternatives) at the MINATEC Campus in Grenoble (France). Since 2014, she lives in Sherbrooke (Canada, Québec). She is currently working with the Interdisciplinary Institute for Technological Innovation (3IT, University of Sherbrooke) and the UMI LN2 (Nanotechnologies and Nanosystems Laboratory), as a co-leader of the "Impacts, Uses and Society" group (CNRS - University of Sherbrooke). During the course of her stay, she is diversifying and strengthening the “user experience” approach by deepening the links between the "user centric approach" and the "ethics, sustainable development and social responsibility (CSR) " triptych. This work led to the development of a “responsible social uses” approach (UR) allowing for the introduction of questions concerning the ethical, social, environmental, economic, and legal impact (E3LS issues) early on in the development of innovation designs.
Talk objectives: interaction between technological innovation and social uses, place of multidisciplinarity in the innovation processes.
