The history of INRA – science and politics


E. Valceschini, P. Cornu, O. Maeght-Bournay

Edition 2018

Set up during the food crisis in the aftermath of the Second World War, France's National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) was founded on the notion that public scientific research into the management of life in all its multifarious forms would be of major importance for rebuilding France’s position in the world. This book, based on original documentation and testimonies of the main protagonists, explores the 70 years of the institute’s life, focusing on the interactions between science and politics.

En finir avec les idées reçues sur la vulgarisation scientifique

Enough said about the perceived ideas on scientific extension


N. Beck , M. Vidard

Edition 2017

Researchers often have perceived ideas on scientific culture, which is apparently not especially useful and wastes their time. But what if the opposite was true? The author suggests that scientists familiarise themselves with the scientific extension concepts and tools to avoid envisaging their research further without discussion moments with society.

La biodiversité : avec ou sans l’homme ?

Biodiversity: with or without man?

Reflections of an ecologist on protecting nature in France.


C. Lévêque

Edition 2017

Contrary to certain perceived ideas, man has not destroyed the biological diversity in Metropolitan France but has transformed and enriched it. Deforestation, agriculture, developments of water courses and wetlands and introductions of species have created artificial environments, managed for our varied uses. Up to what point can we control the dynamics of this nature, subject to a variety of constraints such as new agricultural practices, urbanisation and global warming? Is not the biodiversity governed as much by the expectation of citizens as by scientific ecology?
