The Agronomy joint research unit is closely linked to the SIAFEE department (Sciences et Ingénieries Agronomique, Forestières de l'Eau et de l'Environnement) of AgroParisTech, and includes a significant proportion of teacher-researchers in its staff (see organization chart). The unit contributes significantly to the training of :

  • future researchers who will work in the field of analysis, design and evaluation of cropping systems ;
  • future agricultural engineers (or engineers in continuing education) who seek to acquire knowledge and tools to contribute to the transformation of agriculture, in France and abroad.
