- 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.

Water Potential Markers

Development of gentic markers monitoring plant water potential

In the context of a global warming, deciphering signaling pathways leading to plant adaptation to drought, water availability, and salt tolerance is a crucial question. A common crossing point of these plant stresses is that they impact water potential (Ψ), which is a thermodynamical parameter indicating the availability of water for the plant biological and biochemical processes such as turgor (P), stomatal aperture or (...)

New Phenolipids compounds from olive cultivars adapted to Brazilian environmental conditions

Development of new phenolipids based on olive pomace phenolic compounds resulting from olive cultivars adapted to Brazilian environmental conditions

This project aims to develop new phenolipids to be applied as biological active compounds or as improved antioxidant compounds for food and/or cosmetic emulsions, using as raw material olive pomace phenolic compounds obtained from olive cultivars adapted to Brazilian environmental conditions. The health effects of both the phenolic compounds recovered from olive pomace and the respective phenolipids obtained by synthesis will be assessed (...)

Viral-based plant biotech in monocots

Développement de bioréacteurs végétaux et de technologies amplicon/VIGS dans les monocotylédones (riz et maïs)

In recent years, advances on biotechnology have lead to the emergence of plants as bioreactor for the production of molecules of industrial, pharmaceutical and agribusiness interests. A significant development in this field was the use of cDNA encoding viral RNA used as “amplifier” for the protein production. Viral tools have been used to develop an efficient tools for gene function studies: Virus Induced Gene Silencing (VIGS) technology. (...)

Diversification of crops, mixed cropping and risk management in smallholder agriculture in the context of climate change

In this project, the six partners of the University Consortium in South East Asia join with the Labex Agro community at Montpellier to experiment an international course, offered as a Summer School (SS), as an opportunity to assess innovative cropping systems based on crops diversification and associations. The overall aim is therefore to build the capacities of academic training teams and of young professionals to tackle the challenges of (...)

Diversification processes in fig and olive varieties in Morocco: an interdisciplinary ethnobiological–genetic approach

This research project was focused mainly on gaining insight into and identifying the key biological and social factors that determine the variety diversification process in two emblematic fruit tree species with high socioeconomic potential—fig and olive. We investigated this issue essentially with respect to fig trees through an interdisciplinary ethnobiological–genetic approach. The thesis research of H. Achtak involved surveys and sampling (...)

Diversity of varieties and farming systems as an asset of Mediterranean oleiculture in a global change setting

Olive (Olea europaea L., Oleaceae) is an iconic fruit tree species for human societies in the Mediterranean area. It is considered as a structural element of many Mediterranean agroecosystems and is currently a major global source of edible oil, whose demand is sharply increasing due to its high nutritional value. Nowadays, olive growing is still highly diversified since more than thirty varieties are cultivated in the Mediterranean Basin (...)

Domesticating the first MANganese Hyperaccumulator Crop

The Anthropocene has seen a dramatic change in metal cycliing and restoring soils left bare by mining activities or polluted by toxic elements has become a major challenge to maintain ecosystem services and sustainable food production. Some plants naturally exposed for millions of years to high concentrations of metals, have developed particular adaptations including metal (...)
