    The Roadmap of the Objectif Végétal, Research,Education & Innovation program envisages the implementation of an international strategy that should contribute to the international outreach of the RFI partners and achieve the ambition of becoming A European reference center for Horticulture and Seed science by 2020.

    The international strategy was validated by the steering committee of REI Objectif Végétal on 15 November 2016 and by the Pays de la Loire Region on 13 December 2016.

    Seven strategic partners were selected:


    Potential topics for research collaboration

    UNESP (Brazil)

    Seed quality, plant health management, horticulture, integration of plants in urban and peri-urban environments

    University of Hanover (Germany)

    Resistance to diseases in roses, phytopathology

    Wageningen University & Research (Netherlands)

    Seed quality, phytopathology,  rosaceae genetics and genomics (pipe fruits and roses), modelling of plant architecture  and flowering in relation with environmental and genetic factors

    Plant & Food Research Centre / University of Massey (New Zealand)

    Fruits, especially apples and pears, phytopathology, interactions Venturia/Malus

    BioIntropic and the Centre for Biological Resources (Colombia)

    Biocontrol, integration of plants in urban and peri-urban environments, diseases of cut flowers

    University of Turin (Italy)

    Physicochemical properties, quality and texture of fruits, sensory analysis, phytopathology

    Centre for molecular biosciences Innsbruck (Austria)

    Phytochemistry and valorisation of naturally based products

    The implementation of this international strategy must in particular contribute to:
    • consolidate and promote excellence in key research topics
    • accelerate the development of emerging research field
    • develop joint education programmes and exchanges of students
    • increase the number of European and international projects
