Oliver Oliveros: "Agropolis Fondation supports research on agriculture and sustainable development"

Who are you?

My name is Oliver Oliveros. I am the Deputy Director of Agropolis Fondation. It is a scientific cooperation foundation based in Montpellier, France. It aims to promote and support research and higher education in the fields of agriculture and sustainable development. We also try to strengthen the scientific dimension of our network, and to support research and training projects in agriculture and sustainable development, particularly in plant science.

What are your practical actions?

We work in five areas: plant genetics and genomics; pathosystems; agrosystems and agroecology; plant transformation for food and non-food purposes; and interaction between agriculture and society. These actions are implemented by funding research and training projects. Projects are selected through competitive calls, evaluated by international experts and also by an international scientific council. We also commission research and training projects in these areas. Finally, we support and fund research projects in partnership with other foundations and other research or higher education institutions.
