    Objectives

    The programme involves providing a research-based education to students who are likely to contribute in their future professional careers to meeting the major challenges associated with the life and environmental sciences and technologies. These challenges include:

    • producing, transforming and using agricultural, forest and marine bio-resources in a highly restrictive energy and environmental context
    • protecting and managing natural resources: water, air, soil and biodiversity
    • organising, managing and making use of the territories, natural spaces and landscapes
    • offering healthy and safe foods and bio-products adapted to man´s various consumption needs
    • ensuring animal safety and helping to protect human health through better knowledge of zoonoses and emerging diseases

    Since these challenges come at different organisational levels, from local to global, they must be tackled in the context of sustainable development. Henceforth, they will be part of unprecedented demographical and economical development. The necessity of their integration is increasingly recognised and desired for various production, environment and health objectives as well as for the growing needs increase international interdependency in the face of climate change and the limited and even finite character of various resources.
