Science and Process Engineering of Agricultural Products

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

We employ 500 researchers and engineers, including 200 teacher-researchers from Joint Research Unit (JRU) partner organisations.
They work within a network of 24 units. Their research over the next four years is structured around four major priorities
    The design of model foods and complex food models
    The fate of food in the digestive tract
    The lignocellulosic biorefinery
    Integrating knowledge and models

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.
Resources: State fundings: 3.52 M€; other resources: 2.5 M€; wage bill: 26 M€.

Management:

Dr Monique Axelos is Head of the Division since 1 May 2008.

Michael O'Donohue is the Deputy Head of the Division
