European Valorisation Officer

INRAE - National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and the Environment

Paris, France

The French National Research Institute for Agriculture, Food and the Environment (INRAE) is a public institution with more than 10,000 agents across the French territory. INRAE is the first European agricultural research institute and produces scientific knowledge and works for economic and social innovation in the areas of food, agriculture and environment.

FACCE-JPI is a Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food security and Climate Change (www.faccejpi.net) bringing together 24 countries that are committed to construct joint research programming in areas addressing interconnecting challenges. It aims to do that with a strong interdisciplinary research base, encompassing economic and societal aspects with a creative approach towards alignment of national research programmes. Running since 2010, FACCE-JPI operates according to a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) describing the scope of the JPI under 4 core themes as well as successive Implementation Plans.

To achieve its SRA, FACCE-JPI has already launched about 15 joint research actions, including joint calls (ERA-NETs and others) and innovative new alignment mechanisms. The FACCE-JPI Secretariat was partially financed by 2 Coordination and Support Actions from the European Commission before becoming self- financed through membership fees.
