The Integrated Assessment axis

The scientific axis Integrated Assessment focuses on multi-criteria assessment of agricultural production systems, particularly systems that combine crops and livestock. The objectives are to:

  • evaluate the circularity of C, N, P and energy flows between crops and livestock, from the field/building to the landscape, in order to find ways to reduce emissions
  • develop integrated evaluation methods for agroecological systems
  • develop methodological innovations to study trajectories of agroecosystems.

This axis (20 people) brings together skills in environmental assessment, agronomy, zootechnics, bioclimatology.
