The Agropolis Foundation’s prizes are open to agricultural researchers in any discipline. There’s funding available to scale up a food security research project and for outstanding individuals at each career stage. Eleni Courea reports.
The Agropolis Foundation was established in 2007 to promote research in sustainable development and the agricultural sciences. It is based at the Agropolis campus in Montpellier, France. The campus is an agricultural research hub that houses about 2,700 researchers affiliated with 24 French universities and research institutes. Work on the campus focuses heavily on areas related to biodiversity, sustainable agriculture and issues relevant to the global South and tropical areas.
The foundation awards two sets of international prizes.
