Innovation fields



FUL (Ferme Urbaine Lyonnaise)

This project follows on from the evolution of the consumer’s needs, with, as objective, the quality plant production, in large quantity, grown in an indoor artificial environment according to an environmentally friendly engineering. The FUL puts together different innovations serving a new tool of farming production organized in urban areas, clean and that can easily be reproduced.




This project eassesses and selects some innovative biocides whose toxicity has no impact on man and environment in order to market natural and approved products. GreenProtect particularly focuses on plant protection uses and on protection against mosquitoes...




This project aims at proposing an innovative and multi-purpose robotic solution. This means creating an intelligent and autonomous machine which will contribute to decrease the phytosanitary treatments, reduce the hardship of the farming tasks and to improve the productivity of the farms, for instance by weeding mechanically rather than by using chemical products.

This project, whose goal is to efficiently compensate for the emergence of sulphur deficiencies, necessary for plant growth, in soils by developing innovative fertilizers enabling the activation of the nutrition and of the metabolism of sulphur inside the plant.




This project, dedicated to the protection of the vineyards against wood diseases. Its aim is to offer solutions and tools to be applied, from the nursery to the vineyard, to understand the impact of the parasite complex at the origin of wood diseases.




BRIO (Breeding, Research and Innovation on Ornamentals)

The collaborative project, aiming at optimizing and shortening the plant breeding deadlines in ornamental horticulture. It will enable the breeders to save, according to the flower species, 3 to 5 years in their plant breeding programmes, which usually last 6 to 10 years.


GLUTHEALTH : Gluten sensibility in athletes

Gluten intolerance is a growing epidemic in the US and increasingly worldwide. Among the population, athletes are particularly concerned due to a higher prevalence of anaphylaxis dependent on the combination of physical exercise and food intake. This clinical project aims to study the relationship between gluten consumption and its impact on digestive comfort, quality of life and performance of non-celiac athletes practicing an intensive physical activity.




The GlutN project aims at deciphering some mechanisms able to cause NCGS, postulating its prevalence, and identifying clinical biomarkers to facilitate its diagnosis. As bread is the main form of gluten ingestion, GlutN will propose processes to bake specific breads adapted to NCGS patients. The underlying hypothesis is that NCGS may be triggered by strong interactions between protein and starch making a gluten-starch complex, which could be resistant to digestion. Thus, starch and storage protein, being the major components of wheat grain, will both be considered, as they constitute in bread a compact matrix with starch granules entrapped in a protein network.



 ACTIV HOME has developed a process to manufacture wood walls and floors with straw insulation. It is a patented industrial process (ECOSTRAUV®), using biobased materials with a local production. The constructive modules (walls and floors) proposed by ACTIV HOME will make it possible to meet the requirements of the future RE2020 French environmental regulation. This project aims at spread this process in several locations, based on short supply chains.
