Research institutes

Montpellier Regional Centre
Cemagref is a public research institute that targets results directly useable in land and water management. The goal is to produce new knowledge and technical innovations for use by managers, decision-makers and companies in providing answers to the specific questions raised by society concerning resource management, land use and development. Seeing the integration of social sciences, behavioural sciences and physical sciences as the key to sustainable management, Cemagref focuses in particular on these three topics:
  • The development of methods, tools and expertise in environmental science: building of knowledge on environmental systems (favouring medium-scale and integrated approaches).
  • The exploration of links between the sustainable management of land and of water: developing research on the role of water in land dynamics, considering the governance issues raised on different scales by water management.
  • The strengthening and structuring of research on certain hazards: forest fires, floods and droughts, avalanches and landslides, agricultural pollutions, emerging pollution on natural environments, hydraulic infrastructures breakage, water networks risks, risks related to the use of agricultural equipment, food preservation hazards.
AgroParisTech-ENGREF, the Institute of Forestry, Agricultural and Environmental Engineering, is one of the institutes of AgroParisTech, Paris Institute of Technology for life, food and environmental sciences. More particularly, the objectives of AgroParisTech-ENGREF are to train post-master and PhD students, or professionals to public or private engineering, public policy and management in different fields including water and waste management, natural risks, aquatic and humid environments, territorial planning and local development, sustainable development, rural area and forest development, agricultural and food/food-processing. Both the research projects of AgroParisTech-ENGREF and the training activities are at the interface of engineering sciences, life sciences and social sciences.
Seecon Deutschland GmbH
Seecon Deutschland GmbH (Seecon) is an internationally active SME with vast experiences in research and project management related to projects concerning economic, political, social and environmental changes. It provides authorities, universities and companies, across Europe, with methods, training/capacity building and support in designing, implementing and evaluating participatory and integrated processes. The aim is to bring stakeholders across sectors and from different management levels together in dialogue, and to facilitate integrated planning of their environmental resources. Favoured methods in achieving this are based on experimental learning and participatory modelling.
