About Terres Inovia
Terres Inovia's mission is to improve the economic competitiveness of oilseed, grain legumes and hemp crops through technical means, by adapting production to the economical context, the regulatory requirements and demands of society. Its programs aim to optimize grain production, to value the products and diversify outlets. It is part of a dynamic interprofession, whose goal is to promote the final products of the sector: oil, cakes grain and fibre.
The main crops involved are rapeseed, sunflower, soybean, linseed, pea, field bean, lupin and industrial hemp.
Foresight for plant oils and proteins 2030
At the end of 2013, Terres Inovia launched a foresight exercise with a 15-year horizon (2030), to encourage professionals of the French plant oil and protein sectors to consider the following issues: tomorrow’s end uses for French plant oil and protein production, areas of growth for the oil-protein sector in France and Europe, and the possible consequences of these developments for the actors of the French oil-protein sector, from the breeding of new varieties of crop plants to the transformation of crop products and their marketing.
A group of 18 experts from companies, interprofessional organisations and institutions involved in research and development was established. This group met 13 times between September 2013 and October 2014, and its deliberations led to the development of a prospective vision in the form of four contrasting scenarios. At a 14th meeting in December 2015, the working group debated the results collated and presented in this document.
The first part of this report will describe the approach used to develop the scenarios for the perspectives of the European plant oil and protein production system in its world context in 2030, with the opening of new markets and the heavy impact of agricultural policy making it indispensable to consider these two aspects simultaneously. These scenarios are presented and discussed in terms of their consistency and likelihood, assessed through a numerical evaluation approach, in particular. The preliminary elements of interpretation emerging from the discussions are also presented.
The four scenarios illustrate different rationales for changes in context and the major issues confronting the decision-makers in this sector. An analysis of these scenarios can be used to identify possible pre- or proactive courses of action:
« Descent into chaos »: Economic and political crises, food security issues leading to tensions, competition and growing inequality
« Bloc power »: Regional policies and bilateralism
« Confidence »: International co-operation to prevent climate change
« Climate change »: Economic measures and forced co-operation due to climatic and food tensions
The numerical evaluation of these scenarios revealed the importance attributed to hypotheses about demographic changes, dietary transitions and yield increases. It also highlighted potential dead-ends, resulting in an extrapolation of trends, and even the consideration of over-optimistic changes in direction.
This set of four prospective scenarios was used as a framework for discussions between stakeholders from this sector about the best way to defi ne pre-active actions preparing for change, or proactive actions to infl uence the future, with each player exercising total freedom within the limits of their capacities.

80% engineers ans technicians
Terres Inovia had 137 permanent employees on 31st December 2014, located all over France, 80% of which are engineers and technicians. The staff is distributed in equal parts between activities of research and development.
Its activities cover all sectors aiming at the improvement of oilseed, grain legumes and hemp production, quality and markets.
Its research relies on:
In the field, 12 regional offices analyze field issues and ensure contact and advice for growers.

Contacts and collaborations with all the actors of the sector
Terres Inovia partnerships aim to transfer the results of research to the operationnal actors in the field, and to pass on the demands of producers towards researchers. Terres Inovia is included in several UMT (technological mixed unit) with INRA, takes part in scientific comitees, co-finances theses or studies.
Terres Inovia has many collaborations with other technical institutes (Arvalis, ITB etc) through common studies, experimentations and actions.
In the field, many partnerships exist with development organisations. The whole of the testing network around Terres Inovia covers close to 600 testing plots.
Terres Inovia is in contact with research units throughout the world. It is the coordinator of the International Consultative Group for Research on Rapeseed (GCIRC) and the International Sunflower Organization (ISA).
UMT coordinated by Terres Inovia
A mixed technological unit (UMT for "Unité Mixte Technologique") gathers in a same place several partners in agfricultural research, development and traning. The aim is to improve and increase collaborations and common studies, to encourage innovation and multidisciplinary work. Set for a length of 5 years, UMT are funded by the Ministry of agriculture. Terres Inovia is in charge of several UMT.
Terres Inovia's governance
Link with the producers
This link is provided:
- for oilseeds and grain legumes, by regional commissions for main crops. These commissions are shared with Arvalis-Institut du végétal and cover the main French production regions.
- for industrial hemp by a technical committee which brings together both experts and representatives of farmers and of the transformation process, for each production region.
The Scientific Committee
Terres Inovia's scientific program is discussed by an advisory board, the Scientific Committee, composed of a scientific committe for oilseeds and another for industrial hemp.
This committee is composed of outside scientists not tied to Terres Inovia. It is chaired by a public research personality, who garantees the independance of the Committee. It brings together scientists of the public and para-public sector, representatives of the Oilseed, Grain legumes and Industrial Hemp sectors and economic actors in this field.
Board of Directors
Terres Inovia's inter-professional activity is apparent at the institutional level through the composition of its board of directors. Its members are all agricultural professionnals and represent every economic player in the oilseed, grain legumes and industrial hemp sector.
The chairman of the board of directors is a farmer and most members have outside duties in other professional organizations in the sector.
The Scientific Committee and the Board of Directors were renewed in 2013.

Terres Inovia's means
Terres Inovia's total budget is approximatively 15 million euros.
All oilseed and grain legumes producers contribute to funding Terres Inovia through a levy made mandatory by the government and paid to ONIDOL (National Interprofessionnal Oilseed Organization) and UNIP (National Interprofessional Union for Protein-rich Plants). For industrial hemp, Terres Inovia is funded by the growers through the Interchanvre interprofession.
The budget is complemented by financing from the Ministry of Agriculture (CASDAR), public R&D contracts (European Commission, French ministries and regions) and contracts with industries in the sector.
Detail of Terres Inovia's budget (2014)
Terres Inovia is one of the first organisations to have been officially qualified as an agricultural technical institute by the Ministry of Agriculture in 2007. This qualification was renewed in 2012.
This qualification is in addition to the ISO 9001 certification Terres Inovia aquired in 2000, and confirmed in 2012. This certification, given away by AFAQ* concerns Terres Inovia as a whole, for all its activities, and is an acknowledgement of the quality of Terres Inovia's working methods. It also compels Terres Inovia to constantly improve its procedures and functioning.
The Ardon Analysis Laboratory is accredited according to the EN-ISO-CEI 17025 guidelines since 1996 and renewed in 2011, and Terres Inovia's testing stations received the "Good Testing Practices" certification in 1999, renewed in 2014.
This enables Terres Inovia to answer the most demanding competitive biddings.
