Emergence projects

Besides flagship projects and the networks, the LabEx BASC also funds small innovative projects over 12 to 24 months in order to foster new collaborations between BASC academic and/or non-acadmeic partners. Calls for proposals were launched in 2013, 2014 and 2016.

Twelve projects selected in 2016


Biodiversity-related adaptation of territoires to climate change


Assessing biodiversity and beneficial insects in agroecological crop systems through a stakeholders network


Understanding the determiners of the corn-bean association: agricultural practices, soil-plant interactions, nutrition


ecotoxicology in a global change context : from knowledge to action


Crop emissions of nitrogen compounds at the regional scale: Feedback on the functioning of vegetation covers through impact on atmospheric chemistry under various land use scenarios


Periurban areas: interactions and evolution in the contect of global change


Impacts of domestication on adaptation of insect pest in fruit trees: towards a biological control of apple trees' aphids?


Temporal evolution of bacteria-fungi proportions in forest soils in spring
