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.

NRT1.1-induced ammonium toxicity

Elucidation of mechanism for ammonium toxicity caused by nitrate sensor NRT1.1/NPF6.3 in Arabidopsis thaliana

The general objective of the project is to investigate mechanisms determining nitrogen use efficiency in plants, through collaboration between the group of Dr. A. Gojon in BPMP and the group of Prof. H. Sakakibara at Nagoya University. The experiments planned in Montpellier will be devoted to answer two specific questions : 1) does NRT1.1 acts in the roots or in the shoot to induce ammonium toxicity?, and 2) what is the relationship between (...)

Ad hoc support : Farmer’s knowledge in Senegalese Land Reform

Embedding farmers’ knowledge into a decision-makers’ modelling of land reform in Senegal

A participatory design of land policies has been designed then implemented in 2008 to transfer the abilities for autonomous scaling-up participatory analysis and foresight. Participatory simulating workshops based on a role playing game, help participants co-develop their own proposals for territorial management then test them (by simulating them) at different scales (local, regional, national). An autonomous scaling up and out process is (...)

Endogenous virus markers and plant genome NGS sequencing to address Musa biodiversity and enhance genetic resources for breeders

Sweet and starchy bananas are among the major food crops providing staple food and livelihoods for millions of small farmers across the tropics and subtropics in Africa, Asia, America and Oceania. However a large part of the global production relies on a limited number of edible cultivars clonally propagated, with a narrow genetic diversity as a consequence. The major gap to be addressed is to provide locally well adapted varieties to supply (...)

Enhancement of native Arbuscular Mycorrhizae Fungi (AMF) for adaptation to drought spell and sustainable yield increase in small holder farmers’ fields

Enhancement of native Arbuscular Mycorrhizae Fungi (AMF) for adaptation to drought spell and sustainable yield increase in small holder farmers’ fields

The proposed work aims to use AMF to enhance yam resilience to climate change and to improve the livelihood of rural yam farmers. This will be through the isolation, multiplication, and packing of indigenous AMF that will be readily available for their use

Enhancing Modelling Skills for Agronomists and Crop Scientists

Modelling is a technique used in agronomic research to analyse, predict and project the interactions between genotype, environment and management in agro-ecosystems. Its use in agronomic advisory services and plant breeding is also developing rapidly in France and worldwide, in both private and public sectors. There is a current deficit of people with modelling skills in the European and global job market and that our project aims to (...)

Ensuring the future of perennial crops in Southeast Asia in a context of gobal change : case of Garcinia fruit tree species.

Southeast Asian rainforests host a remarkable biodiversity. This natural heritage is seriously threatened from deforestation and climate change. To ensure that crop production meets future needs, genetic diversity (the source of adaptation and improvement) needs to be conserved in cultivated and in close wild relative species. Yet, determining wild ancestors of perennial crops is very complex. For a large number of cultivated plants, we (...)
