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.

CLIMA

Designing CLImate smart farming systems 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 (...)

Designing REsilient stone fruit trees via integrative phenotyping in low phytosanitary input orchards and Association genetiCS

The Prunus orchard must address an urgent societal and environmental demand for pesticide reduction and has to face unexpected epidemiological changes due to climate change in a context of intense exchanges of plant material across borders. Adapting Prunus crops to these challenges implies a reevaluation of the current breeding methodology to breed resilient trees, i.e. trees able to sustain their production over the years in the presence of (...)

Determine the structure and function of a new family of small molecules produced by Xanthomonas oryzae, Xanthomonas translucens and Xanthomonas albilineans

Recruitment of a PhD student from a southern country (Souhir SABRI, Morocco) to work on the identification of (i) new virulence effectors capable of targeting and disrupting key plant functions or (ii) other small molecules necessary for pathogenesis.

Developmet Ethics and the social management of innovations

Development Ethics and the Alliance Approach to the social management of innovations.

Development Ethics is an interdisciplinary field of ethical reflection on the ends and means of development. All development projects, including – but not limited to – projects in agro-economics, innovation processes, social management of innovation (participatory methods), and sustainability, have rich and complicated ethical dimensions. We make an ethical choice when we choose to ignore, rather that explore and seek to understand these (...)

Development of a high-throughput system for the functional analysis of virulence effector proteins of Magnaporthe grisea

Development of a high-throughput system for the functional analysis of virulence effector proteins of Magnaporthe grisea

:The aim of the project was the development of a heterologous system for the functional analysis of fungal candidate effector proteins. The initial project was to develop a system based on the use of the bacterial rice pathogens Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo) and Xanthomonas oryzae pv oryzicola (Xoc) for the identification of Magnaporthe oryzae effector proteins with a strong contribution to virulence or acting as avirulence (...)

Non-destructive quality phenotyping of mandarins

Development of a non-destructive methodology for phenotyping mandarins by infrared spectroscopy to assist in the study of phenotypic variability in response to water stress and in varietal selection

This study had as main objective the nondestructive phenotyping of mandarins quality by near infrared spectroscopy. The specific objectives of the project were: 1) Define the protocol for measuring spectral reflectance of whole mandarins using a spectrometer ultra-portable Phazir 1018 (Polychromix, Thermo Fisher Scientific, 2 Radcliff Road, Tewksbury, MA 01876, USA ) 2) Develop calibration equations for Brix and acidity contents.

Development of a biomechanical toolbox – Acronym : PlantBioM.lib

Development of a toolbox for modelling and simulating feedback between plant growth and biomechanics

The PlantBioM project aimed to develop a toolbox to simulate the mechanical behavior of a growing plant on the basis of the beam theory. This toolbox, which comes in the form of a software library, is designed to be implemented in simulation platforms for plant growth, but also able to operate independently (stand alone version). The project was divided into 4 main steps: 1 - definition of the structure of the library: it was mainly to (...)
