- 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.

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 (...)

Drought and salinity tolerance in rice (Oryza sativa L.): cell biology ap-proaches

The rationale of our project is to use a strategy of over-expression of proteins suspected to be involved in (1) osmotic adjustment and (2) endosomal trafficking for a better understanding of drought and salt tolerance in rice plants.

Dynamics and evolution of life traits of plant pathogens and crop pests

The development of a more sustainable agriculture is at the core of current ecological and societal concerns. Facing this scientific challenge we have to pave the way to a more durable use of ecologically-acceptable management strategies of plant pathogens and pests such as e.g. the use of resistant plant varieties, biocontrol agents or new generation pesticides. So far most theoretical developments concerning the durability of crop (...)

Dynamics of Soil Carbon Sequestration in Tropical and Temperate Agricultural ABSYSs

Questioned on the 4/1000 initiative on soil carbon (C) sequestration to face climate change (CC), several Labex Agro units and their partners propose to pull together their research capacities in order to provide new insights in soil C sequestration. The DSCATT project proposes to explore the potential for sequestering C in cultivated soils, taking into account the sustainability of agricultural practices in the context of global changes. (...)
