We would like to thank all our partners who made this symposium possible. 

DuPont Pioneer

DuPont Pioneer

DuPont Pioneer is supporting this symposium in the context of  The DuPont Plant Sciences Symposia series

At DuPont Pioneer, we believe the next generation will play a pivotal role in meeting food and energy needs. Working with students to facilitate a science-based forum such as the DuPont Plant Science Symposia series enhances discussion amongst the academic community and private industry; builds key organizational and management skills in future plant scientists; and exposes students to career opportunities in agriculture.

In a radically changing international environment, Université Paris-Saclay is a French world-class research university located between Paris and Versailles, an area known for science and innovation.

Université Paris-Saclay brings together universities, "grandes écoles" and research organizations in a unique structure: members retain their own identity and resources, agree to coordinate their work, and pool certain resources in projects that are defined and implemented jointly.

Université Paris-Saclay benefits from the support of the French government for the development of educational and commercial real estate projects, as well as transportation, accommodation, and other services for students and staff.

Investissements d'Avenir

Investissements d'Avenir

Les investissements d’avenir est un programme d’investissement de l’État français, initié en 2010 et toujours en cours en 2017. Ils sont gérés par le Commissariat général à l'investissement (CGI) qui est chargé de sa mise en œuvre.

Les fonds disponibles ont permis, entre autres, un soutien à la recherche et aux projets innovants, la création des instituts de recherche technologique (IRT), des instituts hospitalo-universitaire (IHU), des sociétés d’accélération du transfert de technologies (SATT) et un soutien au projet de cluster technologique Paris-Saclay.

INRA Centre de Versailles-Grignon
Route de St-Cyr (RD 10)
78026 Versailles Cedex

The Laboratory of Excellence Saclay Plant Sciences gathers around 50 research teams specialized in plant sciences belonging to 4 institutes in the Paris area and represents almost 700 people. The current research activities of the LabEx partners concern the genetic, molecular and cellular mechanisms that control plant physiology and development, as well as their interactions with fluctuating biotic or abiotic environments. These studies extend from the gene to the entire plant, and use the concepts and tools of biochemistry, biophysics, imaging, molecular biology, genetics, cell biology, modelling and bioinformatics.
