You will initially investigate the uses outside the normal scope "teaching-research-housing" and structure the results.Search the upside down uses within the academic and / or scientific obligations  (courses, research, group work, conferences ...) or as part of student life (business associations, sports, cultural ...)


In a second step you will analyze the changes at work in the upside down uses (new ways of working, communication, life, new technologies, new services) and the constraints they allow to overcome (distance, gain time, increasing efficiency, taking into account the ecological / sustainable development etc ...)
