Université Catholique de l’Ouest, France

Founded in 1875, the French Catholic University of the West is a key player in higher education and research today. UCO will be involved in this project through researchers from LIRFE (Interdisciplinary Research laboratory on Life Issues in Training and Education) and CHUS (Centre of Research on Humanities and Societies) research units, specialized in mediation, transmission and uses in the cultural sector. The research team uses a communicational and sociological approach to devices, processes and audiences, and also deploys specific empirical tools tailored to cultural issues: quantitative surveys, interviews, observation, and socio-semiotic analysis.
