Who contributed to the project?

As you can see from the list of contributors below, this Mooc is a collective work! It is co-produced by Inria and the Class'Code association, with the support of the Ministry of National Education, Youth and Sports and of the Digital Technologies University UNIT.

Many of the authors of this Mooc participate in EcoInfo (CNRS), a working group dedicated to the analysis, awareness and training of the environmental impacts of information technologies.

Mooc authors

Françoise Berthoud holds a master's degree in biomathematics and is a research engineer at Joseph Fourier University and then at CNRS. In 2005, she co-created and managed until 2019 a working group dedicated to the environmental impacts of ICT EcoInfo. Within the University of Grenoble Alpes and the support and research unit GRICAD, she leads local actions in favour of the reduction of digital impacts and provides numerous training courses or workshops related to this theme.
Françoise is the scientific referent of Part 2 "Non-renewable equipment". She participated in the elaboration of the Mooc outline and proofread and validated all the contents.
