French National Institute for Agricultural Research is Europeâs top agricultural research institute and the worldâs number two centre for the agricultural sciences. Its scientists are working towards solutions for societyâs major challenges. The main aim of INRA is to explore, understand, experiment and think ahead and to give people freedom of choice and the ability to innovate in the field of agriculture. The various specialities and focal issues of INRA is Food, nutrition, agriculture and the environment Competitiveness, regional land use, health, sustainable development and bioeconomy. The milestones and uniqueness of INRA is the worldâs second greatest producer of publications in the agricultural sciences, 250 laboratories including 48 experimental units across 13 scientific divisions and17 research centres. A community of 12 000 people including 8165 permanent staff, 1815 full-time researchers, 2616 interns and 522 PhD students with INRA grants. An annual budget of 881.57 million euros 77% of funds coming from the Ministry of Research and 20% from other publically-funded sources. INRA is Structuring higher education, agronomy, and veterinary science (From Agreenium to IAVFF), designing and coordinating national scientific strategies on the topics of the environment (AllEnvi), biology and health (Aviesan), digital technologies (Allisten), energy (Ancre), and the social sciences (Athena). Seven INRA research units from southern Ile De France, in partnership with Agro Paris Tech, the National Veternary School at Maisons-Alfort, ANSES, and three experimental units, have joined together to form the Sciences & Animals Paris Saclay (SAPS) Institute, one of the exciting stages in the creation of Paris-Saclay University. With over 600 people working in research and shared experimental resources, SAPS has the ambition of developing noval multidisciplinary research, initiating new partnerships between the public sector and industry, reinforcing the opportunities for education in animal sciences, and encouraging relationships between the biology of livestock and that of model animals. This project is focused on the impact during developmental stages of maternal nutrition and the physico-chemical and emotional environment, along with breeding conditions, on growth, health, and fertility of progeny. The approach combines multi-scale phenotypic measures and is aimed at improving our knowledge of the mechanisms that are implicated through epigenetic, metabolic and transcriptomic analyses. By doing research and developing legume crops, the Eucleg project seeks to reduce Europeâs and Chinaâs dependency on imported plant proteins. It is coordinated by the Multidisciplinary Research Unit for Grasslands and Forage Crops (URP3F) and supported by the European Union. Since January 2014, the Horizon 2020 programme has allocated EU funding to research and innovation, including the Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development. Its â¬70.2 billion budget supports three major priorities: excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling seven societal challenges, one of which is sustainable food security. To address this social challenge, Horizon 2020âs third call for projects selected the Eucleg legume project, coordinated by the URP3F. This four-year project unites 38 public and private partners across France (INRA, INRA Transfert, Jouffray-Drillaud, RAGT and Barenburg), twelve other European countries and China. Agroecology and multi performance agriculture have, since 2010, been two of INRAâs scientific priorities. Article 1 of Franceâs Law 2014 1107 of 13 October 2014 on the Future of Agriculture, Food, and Forests highlights the convergence of these two issues. The challenge is to use our understanding of agroecosystems to develop high-performance production systems with improved economic, health, environmental, and social capacities. The Law on the Future of Agriculture also sets out the need to support research, innovation, and development and provides for the creation of the French Institute for Agronomy, Veterinary Science, and Forestry (IAV2F). This cooperative institute will take over and expand the work of the Agreenium consortium established in 2009. Over the course of the past year, we have been preparing for the transition, which came into effect as this editorial was being drafted in early April 2015. Behind the scenes, 2014 was also a year spent preparing for Franceâs agricultural research contribution to two major international events in 2015: Expo Milano 2015, the first international exhibition devoted to food issues; and the 21st Session of the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, otherwise known as âParis 2015â. INRA chose to work closely with its AllEnvi alliance partners for both events.
