Professeur des universités -CNU : SECTION 22 - HISTOIRE ET CIVILISATIONS: HISTOIRE DES MONDES MODERNES ET CONTEMPORAINS
Professor at the University of Lille, my research deals with the history of innovation at the crossroads of economic history and the history of science and technology. It currently focuses on the history of the valorisation of research and scientific property.
In addition, I continue to focus on the definition and contemporary uses of different types of intellectual property, which is, in my opinion, a relevant observatory of innovation practices, norms and values.
As a member of the Institut de recherches historiques du Septentrion (UMR CNRS - Lille 3 8529), I take part to the animation of its research program "Innovations". I am also co-editor-in-chief of the journal Entreprises et histoire and an honorary fellow of the Institut universitaire de France.
From the 1st July, 2019, I am the dean of the Faculty of Humanities.
