Flagship projects

- 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.

Congrès “Biorefinery for Fuels, Food and Materials” (BFFM 2015), 15-17 juin 2015

Following the success of its first edition in Wageningen in 2013 (more than 200 participants), the 2015 conference in Montpellier will focus on the theme "How can biorefinery be developed in a systemic scheme to address the main societal challenges of the 21st century? More specifically, the work will be structured around three main areas: • The use of renewable natural resources for food and non-food purposes requires holistic and (...)

Congress Journées Francophones de Virologie

The French-speaking Virology Days bring together more than 400 researchers, engineers, technicians, students, pharmacists, veterinarians, doctors and professors from a dozen French-speaking countries around the world. The themes addressed during this congress provide a global vision of the advances in the field of molecular and cellular, medical, veterinary and plant virology. These days are organised by the French Society of Virology (...)

RICE CONNECTIONS

Connecting the biologies of rice disease resistance, drought tolerance and flowering times

Drought tolerance, disease resistance and flowering time are three major traits in crops that are biologically connected. However the molecular connection nodes linking them together are poorly understood. The Riceconnections projects aims at identifying such nodes in the model system involving rice using three approaches: phenotyping under laboratory and field conditions rice mutants, gene expression analysis under combined biological (...)

Conservation agriculture in rice cropping ABSYSs in Madagascar (CARIM)

Conservation agriculture in rice cropping systems in Madagascar: sustainability and adoption

The increase of Malagasy population leads to an increasing use of low fertile soils. Traditional cropping systems result to nutrient depletion and soil degradation, and low crop productivity. Conservation agriculture (CA) is a way to reduce soil degradation and to provide ecosystem services through a better management of biomasses and soil (...)

COSUkola

Conservation and Sustainable management of Garcinia kola genetic re-sources

The proposed scientific mobility will allow a Cameroonian PhD student involved in the project ‘COSUkola’ being trained in molecular biology and genetics. Besides capacity building aspects, polymorphic molecular markers to characterize the genetic diversity, mating system and gene flow patterns of G. kola will be available. Data acquired on species genetic diversity distribution will provide information on levels and structure of species (...)

Genetic map of Aeschynomene evenia

Construction of an SSR-based genetic map of the tropical legume Aeschynomene evenia: an essential tool for deciphering the Nod-independent symbiotic process and for improving nodulation efficiency in Arachis hypogaea

The tropical Aeschynomene legumes use a unique Nod-independent infection process that is believed to correspond to an ancestral state of the nitrogen-fixing rhizobium-legume symbiosis. The study of this system should therefore shed new light on the origin and evolution of symbiosis by uncovering the basic underlying the process of nodulation. To advance in our knowledge of this Nod-independent symbiotic process, we performed a molecular (...)

Ad hoc support : EcoNet

Construction of regulatory gene networks exploiting natural variability in Arabidopsis thaliana

EcoNet program aims at identifying regulatory modules in gene networks that have evolved in Arabidopsis thaliana natural ecotypes in order to adapt NO3—‐ nutrition to fluctuating environment. The use of natural variation is now extensively used to decipher gene functions through Genome Wide Association Mapping (GWAM) (for details see : (Weigel, 2012)). Here we decided to probe a subset of the Norborg ecotype collection (a core collection of (...)

Controlling the nutritional quality of germinating pulses

Controlling the nutritional quality of germinating pulses

Pulse consumption is recommended by the FAO as it constitute an alternative to animal proteins. Actually, they need few water and chemical inputs due to their ability to fix atmospheric nitrogen. Despite their qualities, pulses are still underused mainly because they need a long cooking time and because of their content in anti-nutritional factors that may degrade digestive comfort and absorption of minerals. To counterbalance these aspects, (...)
