You will be welcomed in the CERTOP in the Transitions Ecological axis. Risks, Innovations, Tourism "(TERNOV) based in Toulouse at the Université Toulouse 2 Jean Jaurès. The TERNOV axis was formed in 2014, around a unifying theme of the ecological transition, considered as a process of transformation of contemporary societies by their greening. TERNOV brings together themes that focus on ecology, culture and health by proposing to study the relationships between professional domains, civic sphere, politics, "market production" and "citizenship". The TERNOV axis focuses on the development and implementation of territorialized public action systems and, in this respect, questions the processes of justice carried out by the actors. It also organizes this research around innovation, risks, the energy and tourism transition implemented with regard to contemporary environmental issues.
