Science for Food and Bioproduct Engineering

The division Science for Food and Bioproduct Engineering conducts its research in the sectors of food, biotechnologies (pharmacy, cosmetology) and in green chemistry (biofuels, materials, biomolecules).

 

The division Science for Food and Bioproducts Engineering” (CEPIA) is one of the 13 research scientific divisions of the National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA). CEPIA conducts its research in the sectors of food and bioproducts (biofuels, materials, biomolecules).

Science for Food and Bioproducts Engineering” (CEPIA) Division focuses its efforts on the development of high performance products that satisfy multiple quality criteria. From an operational perspective, to achieve this goal the CEPIA Division has built its 2016-2020 strategic roadmap to address two key challenges

  • the rational design of food and bioproduct quality
  • the development of eco-efficient processes for sustainable product manufacture

Organization: 22 research units, of which 17 are under joint management with partner organizations such as universities, national agricultural schools (Ministry of Agriculture), or research institutes (e.g. CNRS and CIRAD). 14 facilities possess experimental platforms, such as: pilot scale facilities for dairy processes, wine production, cereal technologies, meat processing, and analytical tools for the characterization of biopolymers, polyphenols, for enzyme screening, aroma and lipid analysis, sensory image analysis and imaging of biological systems.

Staff: 500, including 270 INRA researchers and engineers and about 200 teacher-researchers from partner establishments.

Resources: INRA State fundings: approximately 40M€.

The complexity of certain scientific issues, in plant sciences or chemistry, requires the establishment of interdisciplinary research networks that include public and private research teams working together on fundamental issues. Our major international partners include Wageningen University (NL), IFR Norwich (GB), VTT (Finland) and Riddet (NZ).

The division’s platforms bring together complex and sophisticated tools within the same site. They act as experimental facilities that are open to our academic and professional partners.Management:

Dr Michael O'Donohue is Head of the Division.

Dr Marie-Christine Ralet is the Deputy Head of the Division.
