Bioeconomy & Circular Economy

The bioeconomy and the circular economy represent two essential pillars in the transformation of our current economic model towards a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly approach. These concepts are revolutionizing the way we produce, consume and preserve our planet. They emphasize environmentally-friendly farming practices, sustainable food production chains, and smart farming systems for a brighter future, both for our economy and our planet.

UniLaSalle's research in agroecology, bioeconomy, sectors and territories focuses on the following themes:

  • Soil, water, plant biodiversity & interactions 
  • Plant nutrition and health (bio-intrants and biocontrol), food and health 
  • Cultivation practices with positive externalities: low inputs, low carbon, agri-machinery, new technologies, etc.
  • New value chains and production: plant proteins, bioenergy, biomolecules, agri indoor, climate change adaptation & mitigation 
  • Climate-smart farming systems (recycling and autonomy for fertilization and renewable energy production)
