Jan 24-25 2018, ARVALIS is hosting the first Biennals of Cereals Innovation

"Phloème : the first biennials in cereal innovation" is a new scientific and technical event. It's aim is to share the most recent knowledge, new technical references and the latest technological innovations to improve the multi-performance of cereal systems and their sectors. "Phloème" will be held on January 24-25 at the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie in Paris. "Phloème" is organised by ARVALIS - Institut du végétal, with support from INRA and under the distinguished patronage of the French Ministry of Agriculture, Agrifood, and Forestry.

Innovation : a vital condition for multi-performance

In botany, phloem is the living tissue that carries the elaborated sap required for plants to grow in an organised and harmonious manner. This name is therefore a symbol of our conference's ambitions : "creating a place where elaborated knowledge can be exchanged, transferred and flow to improve the performance of farms and the efficiency of agricultural channels."

Phloème is an event for actors in science and teaching, for decision-makers in development and distribution, for managers of firms and start-ups and, more generally speaking, for everyone, in agriculture or not, who wants to discover the latest references and innovations that can be transferred at various levels of the sector.
