• A new class of biosourced bisphenols for applications in polymer chemistry

    Research scientists from INRA and AgroParisTech have developed a bio-catalytic method using plant biomass to produce a range of compounds that could be proposed as replacements for bisphenol A and whose use properties can be tuned as required.

  • An advance in the breeding of Prunus fruit species

    Since 2011, the number of publications on the genetic determinism of traits of agronomic interest in Prunus species (peach, plum, apricot, cherry, etc.) has doubled.  The markers associated with the genes that control targeted traits can thus be used for breeding programmes.

  • Milk powders

    INRA is positioned as an essential actor in French research on milk powders, which has been one of its scientific priorities for many years, in close interaction with inter-branch organisations and companies in the dairy industry

  • Satellites to monitor the health of forests

    Monitoring by remote sensing of the health status of forest populations requires development of the diagnosis of decline.  In a collaborative context, researchers from the Joint Research Unit for Forest Dynamics in Rural Environments (DYNAFOR), the National Centre for Forest Owners (CNPF) and the Institute for Forest Development (IDF) are proposing to monitor the dynamics of the decline of silver fir in the Pyrenees region, based on remote sensing time series analyses.
