RESUS is a project funded by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) for 2 years (2015 – 2016). Are involved in the project:

The objective of the network is to consolidate and expand new European and international collaborations for developing and improving viability theory tools applied to problems of sustainable management. These following directions will be privileged in these collaborations:

  • Testing the methods and tools on a variety of applications related to sustainable development such as fishery management, agricultural land management or global change management related to planetary boundaries.

  • Improving the methods and tools (computing viability kernels and resilience basins, simulation approaches);

  • Fostering and strengthening the development of mathematical definitions of concepts based on viability theory (such as resilience, adaptive capacity, vulnerability, robustness) and their use in sustainability management; consider links with other important properties of dynamical systems such as tipping points.

In addition to the activity of networking for establishing these collaborations, we aim at submitting at least one European project to the H2020 program within the 24 months of activity of the network. We shall also investigate the possibilities offered by international funding such as Belmont Forum and G8.
