Aura Parmentier
teacher course

PhD in management sciences from the University of Grenoble, specialist in innovation, Senior Lecturer at the University Côte d'Azur.

My research in management and management sciences focuses on the emergent nature of organizational strategies and the role of humans and non-humans in these processes at different levels of the organization, including middle management and employee levels. It is on the development and diffusion of innovations that are eco-compatible, or that support contemporary ecological and social challenges, that I express these theoretical interests. Passionate about qualitative methodologies and strong collaborative and process-oriented approaches, I value multidisciplinary approaches and interactions with practitioners in order to develop knowledge, practices or tools. My current research is mainly oriented towards the issue of agroecology and in particular the diffusion of alternatives to chemical pesticides. I am also involved in the development of academic work aimed at proposing alternative research methods.
