Audrey Coreau completed in 2009 a PhD in ecology where she explored the use of futures studies to elaborate ecological scenarios for ecosystems. She then decided to join the French Ministry for the Environment, where she was in charge of the biodiversity monitoring policy and took an active part in the elaboration of the French national biodiversity strategy. After a couple of years, she came back to her research activities (AgroParisTech et Centre A. Koyré) where she developped a strategic approach to understand how stakeholders, among which scientists, influence science-policy interfaces for biodiversity conservation. She recently joins the French Biodiversity Agency, where she is in charge of national, european and international strategies.
