Inra is a mission-oriented public research agency dedicated to the organisation of agricultural research in the broadest sense: sustainable production, diet and nutrition, food safety, ecology, regional development and landscape management. In these different areas of importance to science and society, Inra has long been
developing basic and applied research in its units.

The Institute is building numerous partnerships within and outside Europe with both established and emerging scientific communities, particularly those which will soon become leaders in agricultural science and production such as Brazil, China and India.

Within Europe, Inra is strongly committed to building the European Research Area in agricultural research through the coordination of European projects and by strengthening bilateral cooperation with institutions in other Member States, such as the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council in the United Kingdom, Wageningen University in the Netherlands, the Swedish Research Council for the Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning or the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. Inra is also involved in pan-European organisations such as Euragri, which represents all public research agencies and ministries for agriculture and rural development in the Member States, and the European Science Foundation.

This Annual Report provides an opportunity for a more detailed presentation of Inra’s organisation, aims and achievements to its partners in Europe and worldwide, as well as to other scientific or professional organisations. It also underlines the key role played by international cooperation in the development of scientific research. Inra is fully committed to pursuing its efforts in this crucial area.
