Abstract

To the many old challenges that agriculture had to face in order to produce more and better, there are now new ones that are pressing: climate change and globalization of trade leading to increased circulation of plants and insects invasive; social requirements for the respect of agroecology, the environment and the quality of food. There are many actors in this process, given the complexity of the subjects, which has leads to partnerships. This paper highlights this cooperation at the three levels of the continuum of the agricultural progress chain. Three leading players, ACTA, INRA and APCA have come together to present their action, or rather a part of their actions, centered on this process. In addition, these three partners are are partners in the Research-Innovation-Transfer unit.
