INRAE and its partners hope to respond to the challenge of transcending countries and industry, and its research is mainly focused on agriculture, food and environment and their interactions. To promote sustainable development as the primary goal, research work is concentrated in six major topics:
1. Climate change and risk2. Agricultural ecology< P> 3. Biodiversity
4. Food, Global Health
5. Biological Economy
6. Social and Regional Strategy
One of the French Agricultural Science Research Institutes (INRA) is the largest national agricultural research institution in France. Founded in 1946. Headquartered in Paris, based on the application of basic theory research, the scientific research system is divided into level 3. The Institute has 8,217 (1986), including 1,541 researchers, 1179 engineers, 4,552 technicians, and 945 executives. The application of basic theory research is mainly, mainly including the processing and storage of animal and plant production, the processing and storage of agricultural and animal products, the protection and development of agriculture and agricultural products, and the production of rural social economics.
One of the national environment and Agricultural Science and Technology Research Institute (Irstea), the predecessa of Irstea is Cemagref (National Center ENGINEERING, WATER AND Forests, national agricultural machinery, agricultural engineering, Hydrology and Forest Center), the center consolidated by two independent departments of hydrological and forest agricultural engineering and experimental research in 1981, officially renamed Irstea in November 2011 to fit the research center, The evolution of agricultural mechanization and agricultural planning to agriculture environment in the past 30 years. The model of the original mechanism is planned, and Irstea continues to focus on the core issues of food quality, water management, pollution prevention, natural risk management, population attenuation of rural areas, and strive to discover and formulate relevant agriculture. And environmental issues, the research level is in the forefront of Europe.
January 1, 2020, French Agricultural Sciences (INRA) and the French National Environment and Agricultural Science and Technology Research Institute (Irstea) were constructed as the French National Agricultural Food and Environmental Research Institute (INRAE).
INRAE is combined by the French National Agricultural Research Institute INRA and French National Environment and Agricultural Science and Technology Research Institute Irstea. The two research institutes are known for their research quality and expertise. Some research structures have produced important research results and bring together major infrastructure (for example, an observatory, technology platform, data repository), including some Cooperative infrastructure in Europe. Therefore, INRAE is ideal for valuable research on many topics, including water resources, regional agricultural strategies, biodiversity protection and recovery, risk forecasting and management, and digital agriculture.
INRAE has 18 research centers, all over France. InRae has 14 scientific sectors related to specific disciplines, but strongly encourages interdisciplinary. A organization that is committed to generating knowledge, promoting innovation, providing expertise and providing information on public policies. Including 268 research units, experimental research units and support units, 5721 top publications, 50% of which are from international cooperation, and 450 social and economic partner income is RMB 30.9 million, including from software licenses, consulting work and plant varieties. The certificate of the certificate of 9.1 million euros, 5 Kano Institute, budget of 1 billion euros, 10,000 hectares of experimental land.
