We analyze these actors’ systems (practices, strategies, discourses, networks, institutional context, etc.). We address several thematic domains: agricultural production systems, agrifood products and markets, access to food and consumer practices, territorial planning and urban agriculture, and R & D and advisory organizations. These themes are addressed at various levels (farm, territory, market, public policy, etc.), based on field work which focuses on and compares case studies. The Joint Research Unit has gained international recognition not only for its publications and thematic expertise in the agricultural and food sector, but also for its theoretical and methodological productions on innovation and development.
