Cette communication vise à montrer en quoi les partenariats publics-privés (PPP) constituent désormais un nouveau mode de régulation du marché de l’accompagnement des demandeurs d’emploi. Les services publics de l’emploi (SPE) doivent établir des PPP avec des prestataires de service pour la mise en place de formation à destination des demandeurs d’emploi. La réalisation de trois études de cas au sein des SPE, dont deux en Belgique et une en Suisse, nous permet de mettre en évidence une forte influence du modèle de gestion du PPP sur la collaboration entre les parties-prenantes mais aussi sur les stratégies développées par les prestataires pour surmonter les problèmes liés à la collaboration avec l’Office de l’Emploi et à la mise en place de la prestation de service.

Massive stars can be considered as crucial engines for interstellar physics. They are indeed the main providers of UV radiation field, and constitute a substantial source of chemical enrichment. On their evolution time-scale (at most about 10 Myr), they typically stay close to their formation site, i.e. close to molecular clouds very rich in interstellar molecules. These stellar objects have also the property to be involved in particle acceleration processes leading to the production of high energy charged particles (cosmic-rays). After rejection in the interstellar medium, these particles will play a substantial role in processes such as those simulated in various facilities dedicated to experimental astrochemistry. This short contribution intends to put these particles, crucial for astrochemistry, in their adequate astrophysical context. [less ▲]

The investigation of the origin and evolution of molecules in space environments, either in interstellar or interplanetary conditions, constitutes a topic of high importance in modern space sciences. The presence of diversified and complex molecules motivates astrochemists to explore their formation mechanisms along with the physical conditions ruling these physico-chemical processes. Beside theoretical approaches aiming at simulating these processes, experimental techniques are nowadays frequently applied. Both laboratory and space experiment projects allow to reproduce to some extent the adequate conditions to understand some of these processes. The most recent results based on these techniques, and the prospects for future investigations, including the use of space platforms, were the scientific motivation of this workshop. These proceedings summarize a part of the content of this workshop, including abundant references to the relevant bibliography. [less ▲]

Temporal and spatial monitoring of soil water potential and soil water content are necessary for quantifying water flow in the domains of hydrology, soil science and crop production as knowledge of the soil water retention curve is important for solving Richards’ equation. Numerous measurement techniques exist nowadays that use various physical properties of the soil-water complex to record changes in soil water content or soil water potential. Laboratory techniques are very useful to determine static properties of the soil water retention curve, and have been used to show the impacts of hysteresis. Yet, other spatiotemporal dynamics resulting from for example growing root systems, biological activity, periodic tillage and their impact on the soil structure cannot satisfactory be quantified in static setups in the laboratory. ). To be able to quantify the influence of soil heterogeneity, and spatiotemporal dynamics on the soil water retention curve, an in situ approach combining soil moisture and soil water potential measurements could provide useful data. Such an in situ approach would require sensors that can measure a representative part of the soil water retention curve. The volumetric soil water content is often measured using time domain reflectometry, and has gained widespread acceptance as a standard electronic means of volumetric water content measurement. To measure the soil water potential, water filled tensiometers are used in most studies. Unfortunately, their range remains limited due to cavitation. Recently, several new sensors for use under in situ conditions have been proposed to cover a wider range of pressure head: Polymer tensiometers, MPS (Decagon) and pF-meter (ecoTech). In this study, we present the principles behind each measurement technique. Then we present the results of a fully controlled experiment where we compared two MPS sensors, two pF-meter sensors and two POT sensors in the same repacked soil. It allows us to discuss advantages and disadvantages of each method. A CS616 volumetric water content probe was installed to compare in situ measured retention curves with laboratory measured retention curves for each method. [less ▲]

Localisée entre deux zones bien définies culturellement : l’Europe méditerranéenne et celle du Nord, et dotée d’un réseau hydrographique dense, la situation géostratégique de la Bourgogne favorise les échanges de matériaux, les déplacements humains, la circulation d'idées et de savoir-faire au sein de cette zone de passage et de contacts. Cette dynamique marque inévitablement la construction architecturale à l’époque médiévale. A partir du XIe siècle, des abbayes d'influence situées dans la région telles que Cluny et Cîteaux, essaiment à travers toute l'Europe. Ainsi, la région favorise l'affirmation de conventions architecturales qui sont en vigueur dans la Bourgogne romane, puis gothique. Inscrit dans le cadre d’un mandat de recherche postdoctorale financé par le F.R.S-FNRS (2013-2016), le projet présenté ici vise à établir les réseaux d'influences d'idées et de savoir-faire dans le domaine de la construction dans cette zone emblématique en évaluant les origines de modèles architecturaux et leur diffusion au sein de la région mais également à l’extérieur.

Located at the interface between the Paris and the Rhine Basins and the more northern territories of Europe, Belgium contains several Gravettian occupations, both open-air and in caves. The available documentation is unfortunately limited by the earliness of the excavations conducted at most sites. Stratified records in karstic context, primarily excavated in the 19th century, are particularly affected by this situation. The analysis of Gravettian lithic technological behaviours can, however, rely on two open air sites excavated in the late 20th century which provide more rigorous data: Maisières-Canal and Station de l'Hermitage. These two sites have been the focus of comparisons that highlight their similarities, both in terms of the lithic industry and location. In fact, the former stands out for the presence of tanged tools, a typological marker which is usually associated with the Early Gravettian of Western Europe. In this article, we present a new study that evidences the differences in the lithic technical systems represented at these sites. After a presentation of the most recent data, we consider the causes that may be responsible for such diversity, highlighting the possible role of the chronological factor, but also of the existence of an original technical tradition in north-western Europe during the appearance and development of the Gravettian.

Lot of soil survey focused on agricultural soils. For practical reasons, those soils have a low stone content. So, most of the soil water content sensors are placed on low stone content soils and the calibration equations are developed for them. Yet some researches take an interest in forest soils that are often much different from the previous ones. The differences lie in their stone content and their slope. Lots of studies have proved the importance of making soil specific calibration of the soil water content sensor. As our lab use regularly the 10HS sensors (Decagon Devices, United States) in forested soil, we decided to evaluate the importance of the stone content in the soil moisture measurement. The soil used for this experimentation comes from Gembloux (50◦33’54.9”N, 4◦42’11.3”E). It is silt that has been sieved at 2 mm to remove the gravel. The stones used to form the samples come from an experimental site located in the Belgian Ardennes (50◦1’52.6”N, 4◦53’22.5”E). They are mainly composed of schist with some quartz and sandstone elements. Initially, only five samples were constructed with three replications each. The size and the proportion of stones were the variables. Stones were classified in two groups, the first contains gravels whose size is less than 1,5 cm and a the second contains gravels whose size is comprised between 2 and 3 cm. The proportions of stone selected for the experiment are 0, 20 and 40%. In order to generate validation data, two more samples were constructed with intermediate proportion of stone content (30%). The samples were built in PVC container which dimensions are slightly bigger than the sensor volume of influence (1.1-1.3l). The soil samples were saturated and then dried on a thermal chamber set at about 32◦C. During at least 14 days, the samples soil water content was determined by the sensor measurement with the Procheck read-out system (Decagon Devices, United State) and by weighting the samples thrice a day. The evolution of the soil sample height was monitored as well. As first result, the stone content is a parameter that seems to influence soil water content. The stone size is no important. Because soil moisture deserves to be measured accurately in every soil and to confirm the first results the experiment is going on with more samples, different stone proportions, other sensor positioning and a natural air drying.

We present preliminary results for an updated extraction of the transversity parton distribution based on the analysis of pion-pair production in deep-inelastic scattering off transversely polarized targets in collinear factorization. Data for proton and deuteron targets by HERMES and COMPASS allow for a flavor separation of the valence components of transversity, while di-hadron fragmentation functions are taken from the semi-inclusive production of two pion pairs in back-to-back jets in e+e- annihilation. The latter data from Belle have been reanalyzed using the replica method and a more realistic estimate of the uncertainties on the chiral-odd interference fragmentation function has been obtained. After encoding this piece of information into the deep-inelastic scattering cross section, the transversity has been re-extracted by using the most recent and more precise COMPASS data for proton target. This picture represents the current most realistic estimate of the uncertainties on our knowledge of transversity. The preliminary results indicate that the valence up component seems smaller and with a narrower error band than in previous extraction. © 2015 Owned by the authors, published by EDP Sciences.

Electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) has often been put forward as a promising tool to quantify soil water and solute fluxes in a non-invasive way. In our experiment, we wanted to determine preferential flow processes along a forested hillslope using a saline tracer with ERT. The experiment was conducted in the Houille watershed, subcatchment of the Meuse located in the North of Belgian Ardennes (50˚1’52.6”N, 4˚53’22.5”E). The climate is continental but the soil under spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.) and Douglas fire stand (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) remains quite dry (19% WVC in average) during the whole year. The soil is Cambisol and the parent rock is Devonian schist covered with variable thickness of silty loam soil. The soil density ranges from 1.13 to 1.87 g/cm3 on average. The stone content varies from 20 to 89% and the soil depth fluctuates between 70 and 130 cm. The ERT tests took place on June 1st 2012, April 1st, 2nd and 3rd 2014 and May 12th 2014. We used the Terrameter LS 12 channels (ABEM, Sweden) in 2012 test and the DAS-1 (Multi-Phase Technologies, United States) in 2014. Different electrode configurations and arrays were adopted for different dates (transect and grid arrays and Wenner – Schlumberger, Wenner alpha and dipole-dipole configurations). During all tests, we systematically faced technical problems, mainly related to bad electrode contact. The recorded data show values of contact resistance above 14873 Ω (our target value would be below 3000 Ω). Subsequently, we tried to improve the contact by predrilling the soil and pouring water in the electrode holes. The contact resistance improved to 14040 Ω as minimum. The same procedure with liquid mud was then tested to prevent quick percolation of the water from the electrode location. As a result, the lower contact resistance dropped to 11745 Ω. Finally, we applied about 25 litre of saline solution (CaCl2, 0.75g/L) homogeneously on the electrode grid. The minimum value of contact resistance reduced to 5222 Ω. This improved the contact resistance substantially, but complicates the execution of a pulse tracer experiment. To date we did not find any better solution to this problem and we keep searching a way to improve the contact resistance in stony forested soils with very low bulk density. We would like to exchange on these questions with EGU attendees in order to improve the experimental design or point out a new research path for these specific conditions. This could lead to enhance the use of ERT in soils with low density and high stone content. [less ▲]

However, the current understanding of P. oceanica photosynthetic responses to environmental stresses does only allow scientists to use the PAM-method as a complementary tool to other more-robust monitoring techniques. Consequently, a more in-depth knowledge of the natural causes of variability of P. oceanica photosynthetic responses are a prerequisite to any surveys relying on that time and cost-effective method. In the framework of the STARECAPMED project, this work aimed to determine the influence of several environmental (depth, daytime, season) and plant-specific characteristics (leaf age, leaf part analyzed, epiphytic coverage) on the photosynthetic responses (Y, ETR, RLC) of P. oceanica. Water temperature, irradiance and several biochemical parameters of the seagrass (chl.a, chl.b, C, N, P, micronutrients such as Fe, Cu) were measured as well. The field survey was performed in a pristine meadow in the Calvi Bay, Corsica. Environmental and plant-physiological characteristics deeply influenced P. oceanica photosynthetic responses. As an example, ETR decreased with depth, contrary to Y that mostly increased. ETR was lower in the basal part of leaf blade, and the epiphytic coverage of leaf tips slightly increased their ETR compared to leaf tips cleaned of epiphytes. Depth and leaf part-related variations in RLC were also observed. Because of this natural variability, it appears essential to develop a consensual protocol of chlorophyll fluorescence measurements to publish reliable and comparable results between studies. We therefore notably suggest to perform measurements close to midday, when photosynthetic responses are the highest; at 10-15 m depth in order to avoid, among others, low depth light irradiance variability; on the middle part of the 3rd-4th external leaf, well developed, highly photosynthetic, and little epiphyted. Finally, because P. oceanica fluorescence was correlated with N, P and chl.b leaf contents, the PAM-method could afterwards be used as bioindicator technique, according to the protocol proposed.

The loess belt of Western Europe is a high-risk area regarding diffuse erosion. It is due to the climate and the topography but also to the soil type. Loamy soils are naturally highly sensitive to diffuse erosion. Hence, these soils are very fertile. So, they are intensively cultivated which increases their sensitivity to erosion. Sheet erosion is an erosion type strongly represented in these regions. Contrarily to the concentrated form of erosion which happens more brutally, sheet erosion needs long-term observation time-scales, which remains rare. In Belgium, a soil map was established in 1956. This map is quite detailed and notably informs about the different horizons which are in the profile (ploughed horizon, eluvial horizon, clay included between the horizons, carbonate-free loess horizon, and all these were characterised by drainage class) and their depth. It was based on a dense augering network across the country (one point every 75 meters). A new augering campaign was done again in 2014. It consisted in one observation every 50 meters on an agricultural watershed of 124 hectares located in the centre of Belgium. This catchment has been cultivated since the 14th century and is representative of the local context (gentle slope (3-8%), plot size (mean value of 10 ha), …). We compared the two soil maps produced on this site with a 58years time lapse. Results show that the large majority of the watershed falls from upslope soils with weak erosion to slope soils with strong erosion. The soil thickness diminished in some zones to 1m10 (minimum estimation) of erosion. This comparison shows that very few upslope soils are preserved. On the other hand, the areas where colluviums were present to the full depth stay at the same place in the main thalweg of the watershed. Other areas on the watershed seem to be subject to a (minimum estimation) of 40cm of sediments deposition. Large areas in the watershed suffered from erosion and came to deposition areas as the clay horizon is no longer observed under the colluviums. It can be highlighted that soil depths were worryingly lost during 58 years of tillage and that some soils were converted to colluviums which is of lower agronomical quality than the original soils which had a clay horizon below to keep water. Diachronical soil survey offers an unique insight of long term diffuse erosion and should demonstrate the importance of preserving soils even in regions where agricultural yields are not (yet) affected by erosion.

Les banques françaises subissent depuis une dizaine d’années, de profonds changements qui les amènent à redéfinir leur approche client et les amènent à faire des choix stratégiques importants. Nous avons partagé l’expérience innovante d’une grande banque mutualiste française, qui a initié un important changement organisationnel dont la particularité est de s’inscrire dans une approche de type NWOW. L’intérêt de ce papier réside dans la mobilisation de deux approches théoriques complémentaires, la théorie néo-institutionnelle élargie, et l’approche stratégique des acteurs, pour analyser, dans une perspective critique (Critical Management Studies), l’implémentation d’un changement inspiré du NWOW. Nous avons mené une étude de cas auprès d’une soixantaine de collaborateurs bancaires impliqués dans le changement organisationnel. Nous avons recueilli l’avis des membres de la Direction Générale pour comprendre l’émergence et les caractéristiques du changement organisationnel, et celui des collaborateurs sur le terrain pour évaluer leurs perceptions quant aux conséquences du changement dans leur quotidien professionnel.

Relations entre marqueurs de neuropathie autonome, pression pulsée et insuffisance rénale chronique chez le patient diabétique de type 2 Relationships between markers of autonomic neuropathy, pulse pressure and chronic kidney disease in patients with type 2 diabetes Objectifs : Le patient diabétique de type 2 (DT2) est exposé à un risque accru de neuropathie autonome cardiovasculaire (NAC), de rigidité artérielle et d’insuffisance rénale chronique (IRC). Le but du travail est d’étudier les relations entre la NAC, PP et le débit de filtration glomérulaire (DFG) chez le patient DT2. Méthodes : L’étude comprend 79 patients DT2 (53H, 26F; âge initial : 56±8 années; durée connue du DT2 : 11±8 années; IMC : 28,4±4,6 kg/m²) analysés par enregistrement continu de la pression artérielle (PA) et de la fréquence cardiaque lors d’un test postural standardisé (test de «squatting» : 1min debout – 1min accroupi – 1min debout). Le gain baro-réflexe (GBR) est calculé par la pente de la relation entre les espaces R-R et PA systolique lors du redressement. La pression pulsée (PP = PAS-PAD) est analysée pendant tout le test et par son augmentation durant l’accroupissement (delta PP). DFG est estimé par la formule MDRD au début et après un suivi moyen de 12±5 ans. Résultats : Les valeurs initiales sont : HbA1c : 8,8± 1,7%; DFG : 86±25 ml/min ; PP : 62±10 mmHg; BRG : 1,8±1,4 msec/mmHg. DFG est inversement corrélé à l’âge (r=-0,317; p=0,020), sans relation avec HbA1c (r=-0,023; p=0,935). DFG est fortement corrélé avec GBR (r=0,453; p=0,008) et, moins, avec SqTs (un autre indice d’atteinte sympathique) (r=0,213; p=0,020), mais pas avec le classique indice de NAC R-R E/I ratio (r=0,092 ; p=0,262). Il n’y a pas de corrélation significative entre DFG et PA moyenne, PAS, PP ou encore delta PP. La diminution de DFG (-12±23 ml/min) lors du suivi de 12 ans n’a pu être corrélée de façon significative aux valeurs initiales et finales d’HbA1c, aux trois marqueurs initiaux de NAC (GBR, RR E/I ratio et SqTs) ou aux divers paramètres initiaux évaluant la PA, même si la relation est proche de la signification pour delta PP, un marqueur de la rigidité artérielle (r= 0,20 p= 0,060). Conclusion : La forte relation inverse initiale entre DFG et GBR suggère que IRC et NAC sont aggravées de façon conjointe et, possiblement, qu’une des deux complications influence l’autre. L’absence de corrélations avec HbA1c et les paramètres PA ou PP pourraient s’expliquer par les interférences liées au traitement en cours. L’absence de toute corrélation entre la chute ultérieure de DFG et les autres paramètres initiaux peut s’expliquer par l’origine multifactorielle de la progression de l’IRC chez le patient DT2.

Holzkirchen full scale dynamic experiments were conducted in the framework of IEA Annex 58 research program with the aim to obtain and apply a high quality experimental dataset for model validation of full scale buildings. A first experiment was conducted in August 2013. Two identical houses were submitted to a side by side experiment, one with blinds up, one with blinds down. That first experience lasted 42 days including an initialization period, a Randomly Ordered Logarithmic Binary Sequence of heat inputs (ROLBS), and a re-initialization followed by a free-float period. A second experiment was conducted in April 2014 in one of the two houses, with higher levels of heating power in the South oriented zones and imposed indoor temperatures in the North oriented zones. Simulations were performed with EES Engineering Equation Solver using simplified RC dynamic models. The discrepancies observed between simulated results and measured data were first explained through a deeper analysis of thermal bridges, a better assessment of solar heat gains and a better assessment of the air duct heat losses. In the second experiment, the results revealed an underestimation of the building transmission heat losses. A candidate explanation might be the air stratification which would enhance heat losses on the ceiling side. A modelization of the upper and lower room air layers was introduced. The resulting simulated indoor temperature profiles were in accordance with the measurements. A complete breakdown of heat losses and heat gains was computed for both houses, using measured temperatures as input data for the simulation. [less ▲]

Reducing pesticide use is one the major issues of today’s agriculture. Among other possibilities, attracting and conserving pest natural enemies in agricultural landscapes by providing them habitats is promising. Wildflower strips (WFS) sown at field margins are one of these potential habitats. They are known to attract and conserve a large diversity of insects, as they provide them food resources such as pollen and nectar, as well as shelter and overwintering sites. However, the risk of attracting insect pests at field margins may represent an obstacle to their adoption by farmers. Conversely, it would be interesting if such WFS could play the role of pest trap crops. In an experimental field sown with WFS intercropped with oilseed rape (OSR) (Brassica napus L.), its coleopteran pests were trapped in both WFS and OSR using yellow pan traps between April and June 2014. More than 130 000 Meligethes spp., Ceutorhynchus spp. and Psylliodes chrysocephalla (L.) adults were trapped. Meligethes spp., Ceutorhynchus spp. were significantly more abundant in the OSR compared with WFS when adults emerged and populations reached their abundance peak. Before and between these periods, the few adults trapped were significantly more abundant in the WFS compared with the OSR. Concerning P. chrysocephala, too few individuals were caught for analysis. Results showed that OSR was more attractive than WFS when coleopteran pests were abundant. In this study, WFS sown for insect conservation may neither favour insect pest conservation at field margin, nor be considered as trap crops. [less ▲]

In last decades, farmland biodiversity came under large threat. To counteract farmland biodiversity loss and other environmental impacts of intensive agriculture, European farmers can apply Agri-environmental schemes. One of these is the creation of flower strips, a part of the cropping field where flowers are sown or naturally settled. Flower strips are known to increase biodiversity in the agricultural landscape, notably attracting specific insects groups, such as pollinators and natural enemies that can provide valuable pollination and biocontrol services to the crop. However, the plant species composition and management of the strips can have a large influence on the identity and amount of useful insects present in the strips, suggesting the need to develop tailored flower strips to maximize the services delivered. Functional diversity (FD) is sometimes proposed as a promising approach, focusing on plant functional traits rather than plant species itself. Yet, it is not certain that sowing a set of plant species results in the desired vegetation with the desired functional trait composition. Species from soil seed bank or dispersing from neighboring vegetation can settle in the strip, while sown species might not always be equally adapted to local conditions. To test this, we developed seed mixtures with four different levels of FD, based on flower traits, and sew them as flower strips in a conventional arable field. We monitored the vegetation to calculate the FD of the realized vegetation. While the absolute FD values of the realized vegetation were lower than the expected FD values, the realized vegetation showed the same FD gradient as expected from the sown mixtures, indicating that it is possible to manipulate FD in flower strips.

Les sujets de G1 sont légèrement plus âgés (58±7 vs 54±8 ans; p=0,04), mais ont un sexe ratio, une durée du DT2, un taux d’HbA1c et des valeurs de PA comparables aux valeurs de G2. Les patients de G1 ont une FC de base plus élevée (88±15 vs 82±14 bpm; p=0,0462) et un DFG plus bas (79±19 vs 95±19 ml/min; p=0,0479). Si la PP en position debout est comparable (59±15 vs 54±15 mmHg; p=0,1983), elle devient plus élevée en position accroupie (73±18 vs 65±16 mmHg; p=0,0395) chez G1 que chez G2. Lors du redressement, la chute de PA moyenne est significativement plus importante (-46±12 vs -38±12 mmHg; p=0,0079), avec un retard à la récupération des valeurs de base (29±19 vs 21±19 sec; p=0,0107) et une tachycardisation moindre (17±8 vs 23±9 bpm; p=0,0359) chez G1. Par contre, la diminution du DFG durant le suivi est comparable chez G1 vs G2 (-13±21 vs -13±21 ml/min; p=0,8561).

To get around UAS limitations and propose a viable solution for wildlife monitoring, the development of new inventory methods is needed. However, most authors use the classic systematic transect method as data processing and statistics are easier. We thus created an application to process data from every type of flight plan and to help detect and compare observations on large datasets. WiMUAS is a small software compatible with the open-source QGIS© that allows the creation of visual maps compatible with geographical information systems based on telemetry data and payload parameters to estimate the covered area. The application also has a slider for animal detection that allows multiple observers to record and compare their results for accurate counts. We then tested it on data from a trial realized on savannah animal populations in Democratic Republic of Congo using the Falcon UAS. We created a new type of flight plan, a rosette-shaped design that can be covered in three flights,.and repeated it twice. More than 5000 images were collected during the six flights. Image projection gives an area of 12,4 km2 for the first trial and of 12,1 km2 for the second. The mean sampling rate for both test is 6,1 %. Observers spotted buffaloes, hippos, warthogs and various antelopes with different success over an average rate of 8 images reviewed per minute. Resulting densities observed by the three observers are similar for each test (coefficient of variation 6,9 and 8,6 % respectively) but mean densities vary a lot between the two trials (23,8 and 6,5 animals/km2 respectively).
