    Guy Richard: a forward-looking innovator

    Guy Richard, Head of INRA’s Environment and Agronomy Division for eight years, has been named Head of the Delegation for scientific expertise, foresight and studies (DEPE). This agronomist’s favourite subject? “Anticipating agriculture”. His method? Team leadership based on strategy and hands-on work.

  • Bruno Martin, research engineer at the Herbivore Joint Research Unit (INRA-VetAgro sup), INRA Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes
    Reaching new heights!

    A passion for animal sciences and a love of mountain life make Bruno Martin an interesting creature. “I was determined to combine both ‘sides’ of my life!” This clearly drawn path led him to a career as an engineer in dairy production in mountain areas. A steady climb since has allowed him to associate livestock farming practices with cheese quality.

  • Emmanuelle Jacquin-Joly, research director and head of the Sensory Ecology Department at the Institute of Ecology and Environmental Sciences of Paris
    Connecting sense of smell and the imagination

    For more than 28 years, Emmanuelle Jacquin-Joly, research director at INRA, has never lost her passion for insects and odours. While the link between the two is clear – insects use their flair to analyse their environment, find food and mate – they can also be an explosive mix when crops enter the equation!

  • Bruno Chauvel, research director at Agroecology Joint Research Unit, Bourgogne-Franche-Comté Inra centre
    Weeds: To love or not to love?

    A taste of childhood

    Once upon a time, a young Sophie Nicklaus’ interest in biology led her to study sciences. Quickly she realised that her focus would be on food. “I was interested in food quality but from the consumer point of view,” she says. And what interests her about research? “Everything!” So she set off on a quest to understand the factors that influence our food choices from early childhood.
