Name of the project : RESYSTER – Resilience of systems and of territories

Type of project : Research projects


The systemic crisis caused by COVID-19 is testing the resilience capacity of our social, economic and political systems, but also of our industrial planning, under real conditions and on a global scale. Faced with this crisis, the industrial sector seems to be showing a certain capacity for resilience, both by maintaining production levels and by adapting tools. The health crisis has nevertheless required adaptation in order to resist, particularly in terms of the management of health risks at work, the implementation of remote work, the shutdown of certain units, the relocation of certain strategic supplies, etc.

The RESYSTER project is based on an industrial cooperation in Fos-sur-Mer (case study) to analyze the effects of the COVID-19 crisis on the industrial strategies of PIICTO association members (dynamics of cooperation and a climate of trust between manufacturers). To do this, the project will use a serious game, which will be considered as a research support tool. Serious games aim to stimulate exchanges and create the conditions necessary for a debate between the PIICTO association and researchers. It must enable researchers to go beyond the mere feedback of experience to lead the actors towards strategic (or even prospective) reflection.

Based on this feedback, the final version of the serious game (called RESYSTER) can be produced. This game should be adaptable to other industrial and territorial contexts.
