Agri - Food

Changes in consumption patterns, growing populations, being nicer to the planet, ever fiercer competition, etc.: agriculture has to contend with critical global challenges bound up with the future of humanity. New environmental and societal challenges are emerging that are forcing businesses from the sector to make radical changes. 
Carnot institutes, the leader in French public research partnerships, are on a mission to partner these changes through research excellence that drives innovation in businesses — from start-ups to large corporations — in the agriculture and agri-food sectors.

Biological changes of a physiological, genetic, agronomic or environmental nature, together with any processing and/or preservation processes used, will have a determining impact on the nutritional quality of products consumed.
