Rodrigo Patiño is researcher at a national research centre in Mexico, Cinvestav, since 2004. He has studied Chemistry and a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry in Mexico City. He has worked in scientific projects in Switzerland, Germany, Cuba and the United States of America. At this moment, he stays for a sabbatical year in the Paris Interdisciplinary Energy Research Institute at the University of Paris 7 – Diderot. Beginning with the development and application of physical chemical techniques in biotechnology, the research line of R. Patiño in the last years has been progressively oriented to the analysis of renewable energies. He is interested on the cooperation among different disciplines around a subject of research, and also to scientific public diffusion. He has led a number of projects with budget of Mexican agencies and a couple of projects with international agencies. Ha has published more than 20 research papers in international journals, including:

He specially published two books about “human factor”: : Risques et précautions, l’interminable rationalisation du social (Paris, La dispute, 2005), et Ingénieries et sciences humaines, la prévention des risques en dispute (Paris Lavoisier, 2011).

Chrystèle Philipps-Bertin, Ph.D. Environmental Psychologist, researcher at the Transport and Environment Laboratory (LTE) of IFSTTAR. Conducts studies on social acceptability of technological or behavioral solutions to environmental problems from transport.
Communication : Assessing the acceptability of electric cars by the scenario method.

After a master’s Degree in Sociology in 2001 (University René-Descartes), Magali Pierre has joined the social sciences research team GRETS at EDF R&D where she investigates issues about households energy uses. She has then focused on residential evolutions and on individual mobility, and more specifically on the emerging electric vehicle in France since 2007. Her recent work has consisted in bringing in a sociological support to trials rolling out electric vehicles and charging infrastructure; she analyses the appropriation of this innovation and the eventual changes in the users’ mobility system (trips, parking and relation to energy…) and in the fleet managers’ organisation.
