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.

Culture of impact in Agricultural Research Organizations: What for and how?

Research institutions are interested in capturing the contribution of their research activities to society, and the changes they generate. This desire may even be stronger, or in higher demand, among institutes having a development mandate. For some organizations, this trend has resulted in the establishment of a “culture of impact” whereby there is a general recognition within the organization that research needs to be thought through the (...)

To provide the community’s researchers with keys to analyse the positioning of their work vis-à-vis society, and conversely, to provide the field actors with keys to analyse their positioning and productions vis-à-vis research. To build with non-academic research partners a community of practice and a shared methodological frame of reference likely to consolidate or develop inter-actor epistemic (...)

De l’idée du produit jusqu’à l’usine Goodfood (ou EFood ou BeFood)

We propose to develop a distance learning program of good practices for agro-food industry conception in Southern countries, in order to disseminate these courses to a large and various public. Using ICT (Information and Communication Technologies), creating tools for skills exchange and communication, allows demultiplying training periods and reducing the cost of it for the (...)

Deciphering citrus tolerance determinants to multifactorial stresses by multi-omic ultra-high resolution spatial mapping of plant-microbiota interactions

Plants are expected to be subjected to an increasing number of multiple co-occurring biotic and abiotic stresses due to climate change, with critical thresholds for their survival. However, our understanding of plant responses to multifactorial stresses remains limited, which hampers the development of efficient breeding strategies to optimise the adaptation of plants to future climate conditions. Active balancing of stress response (...)

Deciphering genetic and environmental effects on apple tree responses to water deprivation scenarios

In the face of increasing water scarcity, adapting breeding programs to target crops for more efficient water use is crucial. This requires a comprehensive knowledge of the plant physiological responses to drought, including the regulation of water status in plant tissues (by stomatal closure) and the determinants of water-use efficiency (the ratio of carbon gain to water use). These challenging questions have been scarcely studied in (...)

What drives CMV in Espelette?

Deciphering the key drivers of cucumber mosaic virus epidemics in Espelette

Espelette pepper farmers are currently facing devastating and recurrent viral epidemics due to a suspected recent emergence of Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV). This virus threatens the whole production of Espelette pepper, which plays a significant role in the local economy, the agricultural landscape and touristic attractiveness of the Basque Country (Southwestern France). A collaboration between the “Syndicat du Piment d’Espelette AOP” (which (...)

Decision support tools for climate smart agriculture

Decision support tools for strengthening family farmers’ capacity to design climate smart options in Colombia

Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) has emerged as a new framework that links climate change and agriculture development initiatives and aims to establish agriculture systems that simultaneously increase productivity, enhance resilience, and reduce emissions. The transition to climate smart faming systems implies helping farmers acquiring new knowledge, attitude, and skills to analyze the complex impact of technical changes on the three pillars (...)

Demand-oriented training on crop agrobiodiversity analysis and management

The project aims first at identifying stakeholders and their needs in crop agrobiodiversity analysis and management, then at developing innovative training material (only in English because of budget reduction) that will be released through PAR (Platform for Agrobiodiversity Research) and Agropolis websites. Activities : • Analysis of a few projects from the PAR, FAO and Agropolis project portfolio to precise training needs (4-day meeting (...)

Designing CLImate smart farming ABSYSs for the Mediterranean Area

a) This proposal entails the following objectives for the Senior Fellowship request as three components: Research: to examine the nature of the relationships and trade-offs between resource use-efficiency and ecosystem services in the Mediterranean-basin agriculture, including the provision of food quantity and quality for an increasing population under climate change. Supplementary questions would be: what are the trade-offs between ES (...)
