GRUMBACH, Stephane
October 21, 2022 – January 19, 2023
Senior scientist (directeur de recherche), INRIA
Research Topic:
Society’s information system and the sustainability conundrum

Stéphane Grumbach is a senior researcher at INRIA, the National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology in France. He works on the geopolitics of the digital and the emergence of new modes of governance enabled by digital systems and fostered by the challenges of planetary boundaries.

During his stay at RIHN, he will work on the increasing entanglement of digital systems with the global social and natural ecosystems. The current complexity surge fosters the rapid development of digital functions (monitoring, planning, predicting, nudging, control, coercion, remote governance, ...) that result in a progressive but profound transformation of societal and economic organisation. Together with professors Terukazu Kumazawa and Masahiro Terada, as well as other members of the RIHN research projects, they will consider regional and cultural differences in the apprehension of the digital, related to belief systems, the nature/culture divide, the perception of technology, etc. The motivation is to understand how the current mismatch between scientific knowledge and political action can be overcome, and how different cultural settings can contribute to the emergence of a renewed political philosophy that consolidate the future.
