- This page is in progress -

On this page, you can discover a presentation of the 546 projects funded by Agropolis Fondation since its creation in 2007. A search engine is at your disposal and the projects are extractable in PDF format.

The flagship projects are presented above. These are the ones that have received more than 500 000 euros in funding.

The Foundation supports three categories of projects:

Research projects Training projects Dissemination, promotion and transfer projects
Exploratory and innovative projects;
Disciplinary projects exploring research fronts;
Major multidisciplinary flagship projects.
Creation of training courses;
Establishment of MOOCs;
International thematic schools.
International scientific events;
Project maturation/transfer;
Publication and dissemination.

If you are the project leader, do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to make any changes.
We have chosen to present all projects in English to simplify export.

Community seed bank for social justice and conservation of biodiversity? Networks of actors and dynamics of seed attachment

In the last decades there has been a dramatic decline in agrobiodiversity. Many actors highlight the need of conservation more integrated within the local context and embedded in the local knowledge system. In this context, community seed banks (CSBs) emerged as a means to addresses both diversity conservation and social justice issues by: (1) supporting the collective management of agrobiodiversity by the communities; (2) contributing (...)

Food styles and new approaches to innovation

Comparative dynamics of urban food styles

The current project began in February 2013 with a review of the literature in sociology, anthropology, nutritional sciences and psychology on "snacking" food practices, in connection with the theories of modernity in an attempt to characterize urban dietary changes. The first research works aimed to define and contextualize the issue and more specifically the difference between food and "snacking". This work allowed us to define the stance (...)

Comparison of the genomes of three important Arecaceae, co-evolution of sorghum and striga and study of association in sorghum

Comparison of the genomes of three important Arecaceae, co-evolution of sorghum and striga and study of association in sorghum

1 - Comparison of three Arecacea genomes: oil palm (Elaeis guineensis), date palm (Phoenix dactylifera) and coconut tree (Cocos nucifera) The objective of the project is to compare five genomic regions in three Arecacea species: oil palm (Elaeis guineensis), date palm (Phoenix dactylifera) and coconut tree (Cocos nucifera) and with rice. For the project, we used two BAC libraries own by Cirad: one for oil palm and one for coconut tree. The (...)

Complete digitisation of articles from the scientific journal Acarologia

Digitisation of missing articles (36 remaining old volumes (period 1959 - 1995), representing more than 1600 articles and more than 20,000 pages) for full online accessibility of works published in Acarologia, an international journal, published entirely in English and specialised in the publication of research work on mites.

Concept Note GenomeHarvest

Concept Note GenomHarvest

This project builds on a few recent success stories of the Agropolis community in the production of crop reference genome sequences. These landmark achievements have opened news opportunities to better understand the organization and dynamics of these genomes to allow a more efficient exploitation of their diversity in breeding programs. However this brought up new challenges since the full exploitation of these opportunities requires (...)

Concept Note APLIM

Concept Note APLIM

Understanding how tropical and Mediterranean plants respond to their environment is a tremendous societal challenge in the implementing of adapted crop management practices, the breeding of new cultivars able to cope with environmental constraints and the maintaining of plant productivity in a context of climatic change. Many groups in the LabEx Agropolis community have to deal with these important issues at different scales i.e.molecular, (...)
