    The strong development of digital technology has changed the organization of society. Now, new opportunities are available to citizens, consumers, artists, businesses, local authorities, etc. At the same time, new generational, social, economic, technological and territorial tensions are emerging. From this perspective, the role of researchers in the human and social sciences (SHS) is asserting itself in analysing the socially acceptable contours of this digitally driven economy.

    In this perspective, RELIGN places the Loire network of SHS digital researchers in a dynamic of researchers discussing, observing, measuring and analysing the spatial and socio-technical impacts of the digitisation of our daily lives. It extends the initiative of the GIS MARSOUIN of the Brittany Region to the scale of our territory.

    This approach is based on the organisation of (a)-(in)-(inter)disciplinary seminars, alternately at the University of Nantes and Angers and the invitation of French and international colleagues. Their aim is to bring together the complementary viewpoints of sociologists, psychologists, lawyers, managers, economists, computer specialists, geographers and philosophers. These seminars are also open to professionals, thus broadening the fields of reflection and anchoring the RELIGN network in its regional ecosystem.
