The LabEx objectives in terms of:


The LabEx intends to promote a change in our way of thinking so as to renew our modes of action.


The LabEx goal is to develop tools and geo-referenced databases in order to enable systematic follow-up of territorialisation processes and then their transfer to different geographical and cultural settings.

Economic and political impact

Actively involved in the in the expansion of interaction with the social and economic environment, the LabEx DynamiTe develops numerous partnerships. They have several purposes beyond the exploitation of research results to an audience of public and private decision makers. The three specific objectives pursued are: the development of CIFRE scolarships, facilitating the access to new databases and contributing to the debates on the territorial public policy.

Furthermore, the LabEx goal is to increase sensitivity towards the complexity of territory among policy makers, and help them take into account more efficiently the different interfaces between environment, exchange, cities and development.

To do so, the LabEx organizes various events, in order to open to the economic world, planning agencies and regional actors.


The LabEx supports the doctoral system at the level of heSam Université, encouraging mobilities of masters and doctoral students within the LabEx partners.

In its desire to actively support training, the LabEx Dynamite also established agreements with the Université Paris 1, so that PhD students recruited by the LabEx can give classes in the context of monitoring funded by the LabEx .

Finally, the LabEx reinforces the attractiveness of foreign students by the mean of co-tutorships and doctoral grants.

Dissemination of research results

An important place is given to the diversification of distribution channels of knowledge. The LabEx also strongly supports the dissemination of knowledge and their movement between the different disciplines it involves.

To enhance the international visibility of its research, the LabEx strengthen a publication strategy meant to increase the number of publications in top-quality peer-reviewed international journals. This is made possible by the cross-fertilization between diverse disciplines and research units within the LabEx.
