UMR 1248 - Agroecologies, Innovations ans Ruralities (AGIR)

Our project aims to produce knowledge for the actors involved in collective action devices where coordination and learning processes emerge. This project also aims to develop and articulate knowledge on agrosystems (thinked as biophysical spaces but also as managed spaces), trades and skills of the development agents, the strategies of supply, collection and processing companies.

UMR AGIR is a combined INRA-ENSAT/INP research unit brings together researchers in biotechnical sciences (agronomy, ecophysiology, ecology and statistics) and social sciences (management, economics, social geography and sociology). This organization is mobilizing skills to deal with specific issues about agriculture and sustainable development, focusing on situations linking the cultivated grassland and the agroecosystems.

The unit is organised into 3 research teams :

  • MAGELLAN Team - Methods for agroecology and local management of agricultural and natural resources
  • ODYCEE Team - Organizations, knowledge and innovation dynamics in territories and agro-chains
  • VASCO Team - Varieties and cropping systems for an agroecological production
