Located deep within a vast agricultural and forest region, the INRA  Nouvelle-Aquitaine-Bordeaux Centre (France) conducts innovative and targeted plant science, ecological and environmental research in response to current challenges in the agricultural, forestry and aquaculture sectors.


We mobilise a wide range of scientific expertise in environmental physics and chemistry, plant physiology and pathology, agronomy, genetics and ecology for our research projects to addresses four major challenges of regional importance:

1. Strengthen competitiveness and sustainability in the agricultural fruit, forestry and animal production industries.

2. Promote ecological management of agrosystems and cultivated forests.

3. Contribute to a healthy and sustainable diet.

3. Make effective use of plant biomass.
