    Next Generation Horticulture and Seed Science

    The University of Angers and INRA in partnership with the University of Nantes and two engineering schools (Agrocampus-Ouest and Ecole Supérieures d'Agricultures) have just applied to the "Ecole Universitaire de Recherche" call for projects to propose a unique graduate school program called "Next Generation Horticulture and Seed Science".

    This graduate school is based on two pillars:

    • an ambitious research agenda focusing on three main topics: Quality and valorisation of horticultural crops; Physiological and sanitary seed quality; Sustainable management of horticultural crops;
    • a research-driven training program that forms graduate students into highly qualified scientists that will obtain an integrative and multidisciplinary view of horticulture and seed science. The graduate school program will address the consortiums’ research topics and the needs of the industrial sector. Il will be taught fully in English and tailored for 50-65 Msc and 15-25 PhDs students/year.

    "Next Generation Horticulture and Seed Science" will achieve its objectives through an ambitious and innovative actionplan combining six complementary components: a reformed curriculum supported by innovative pedagogy; a personalized research-driven learning program interfacing with the three research topics; close links with the industry; an ambitious international strategy and mobility programme; efficient and assertive attractiveness tools and a simplified organization.

    This project is one of the 3 graduate school projects carried out by the University of Angers.
