Through four key disciplines, the project Saone 2 Rhone places the interdisciplinary approach at the center of its research project.

With the support of several French laboratories and scientists, the students of the mission set up research protocols intended to answer several questions revolving around the ecological restoration, of the past and current uses and representations of the territoryas well as changes in space of these two rivers.

These projects, interconnected and responding to cross-cutting issues, go hand in hand with actions ofsensitizationand ofparticipatory science.

The mission Saone 2 Rhone aims to be at the interface between the collection of field data and awareness-raising action. This is also long-term and outside the research territory, with the development of publications and the creation of a network of partner schools.
