Julie Gobert holds a doctorate in land use planning/urban planning and geography. It is linked to the Laboratoire eau, environnement et systèmes urbains (LEESU). Based on sociology and political science methods (Sciences-Po Lille, 2000-2004), his research focuses on the issues of anchoring and territorial integration of infrastructures (energy production, transport, biomass transformation, etc.) in relation to the issues of social acceptability and environmental inequality. It has particularly focused on the theme of socio-environmental compensation. It currently carries out studies (regional, ADEME, European or industrial projects) aimed at helping local authorities or industrialists to better link the objectives of economic development and the creation (or maintenance) of local value with environmental requirements. Circular economy, industrial ecology and energy transition have therefore entered the spectrum of his work.
