The Plant2Pro® Carnot Institute jointly organised with Agri Sud-Ouest Innovation on 15 may 2018 a "Research & Business" one-day symposium about the technological advances in the high-throughput phenotyping of whole plants.

80 participants have discovered the range of research and innovation solutions available at the Plant2Pro® Carnot Institute during a "Research & Business" one-day symposium, structured around presentations of research results, “B2B” encounters with scientists from the Plant2Pro® Carnot Institute and other participants in the symposium, and visits of two high-throughput phenotyping platforms in Toulouse, AGROPHEN and HELIAPHEN.

The GIS BV has since September 2016 initiated a series of consultations with public and private partners, members and non-members of the GIS BV, around six thematics considered as priorities for plant innovation:

  • Genetic diversity and pre-breeding
  • Genetic control of pathogens and parasites
  • Mastering recombination
  • Genome editing
  • Secondary metabolites in plants
  • Photosynthesis, plant architecture and roots

The synthesis of these reflections has been addressed to the whole of our scientific community. It can be downloaded from the link below.

Christophe Salon, a researcher at the Dijon Agroecology Joint Research Unit, was rewarded for his research collaboration with the company InoviaFlow on Thursday 19 October during the 2017 Rendez-Vous Carnot, winning third prize at the FIEEC awards, worth €5,000. Their partnership led to the development of phenotyping tools and methods (imaging, algorithms, robots, etc.) for the characterisation of root systems in cultivated plant species for the benefit of agroecology.
