Working environment

The French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) is a public institution with more than 10,000 agents across the French territory. Inra is the first European agricultural research institute and produces scientific knowledge and works for economic and social innovation in the areas of food, agriculture and environment.

FACCE-JPI is a Joint Programming Initiative on Agriculture, Food security and Climate Change  (www.faccejpi.com) bringing together 24 countries that are committed to construct joint research programming in areas  addressing interconnecting challenges. It aims to do that with a strong interdisciplinary research base, encompassing economic and societal aspects with a creative approach towards alignment of national research programmes. Running since 2010, FACCE-JPI has a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) describing the scope of the JPI under 5 core themes as well as biannual Implementation Plans. 

To achieve its SRA, FACCE has already launched 10 joint research actions, including joint calls (ERA-NETs and others) and innovative new alignment mechanisms. FACCE-JPI has been partially financed by 2 Coordination and Support Actions from the European Commission. 

Working environment:

FACCE-JPI is managed by an international secretariat partly based in Paris (INRA). The INRA team is comprised of the JPI coordinator and a team of 3 others. This secretariat also includes 5 other partners located in Europe.  The INRA team coordinates all the different joint actions but the management of the joint actions is spread amongst the different members of FACCE-JPI. The Valorisation Officer will be located in Paris INRA headquarters. S/He will act under the direct responsibility of the coordinator.



The Valorisation Officer will be responsible for following up the portfolio of FACCE-JPI research actions with respect to the dissemination and valorisation of key research results emerging from these actions. Results should be made meaningful and relevant to different types of stakeholders but in particular policy makers and practitioners (e.g. farmers).


This encompasses:

  • Implementation of the Strategy  for the dissemination and valorisation of scientific results (available at https://www.faccejpi.com/Document-library/FACCE-JPI-Communication-and-Valorisation-Strategy) to ensure coherence with the FACCE Strategic Research Agenda
  • Organisation of valorisation workshops and other meetings related to FACCE themes
  • Researching, developing and drafting articles, policy briefs, practice briefs, web content, presentations, etc. in association with the relevant researchers;
  • Working with the joint action coordinators as well as the communication team to ensure the visibility and impact of FACCE actions
  • Analysis of relevant policies, foresight, literature… to contribute to FACCE scoping exercises, preparing various written outputs, e.g. annual reports, background papers, inputs to publications and websites related to these actions;
