Les instituts d’études avancées tels que MAK’IT jouent un rôle crucial en encourageant la production intellectuelle par le biais d’une collaboration interdisciplinaire, d’efforts de recherche soutenus grâce à ces congés sabbatiques pour les chercheurs. L’objectif principal est de créer un environnement intellectuellement stimulant dans lequel les chercheurs peuvent poursuivre des recherches innovantes, collaborer avec leurs pairs et contribuer à l’avancement des connaissances dans leurs domaines respectifs à Montpellier.

Grâce à la recherche interdisciplinaire, à l’échange de connaissances et à l’innovation, MAK’IT vise à favoriser des solutions transformatrices qui promeuvent la durabilité et la résilience aux niveaux local, régional et mondial. L’Institut sert de carrefour pour la recherche de pointe, l’éducation et l’élaboration de politiques, contribuant à l’avancement des connaissances et à la mise en œuvre de transitions durables.

En fournissant aux chercheurs les ressources, l’environnement et les opportunités nécessaires à la réalisation de projets de recherche ambitieux, MAK’IT les aide à diffuser les résultats de leurs recherches par le biais de publications telles que des documents académiques, des articles ou des livres. Certains de ces articles ont été publiés dans des revues prestigieuses telles que Nature Food, eBioMedicine et World Development. Les publications contribuent à faire progresser les connaissances scientifiques et à améliorer le profil académique de l’universitaire. De plus, ces publications citent l’Université de Montpellier et le programme d’excellence I-SITE, contribuant à une meilleure visibilité de l’Université dans les classements scientométriques.
