The QualiAgro research programme has been the subject of several theses:

Karim Dhaouadi (2009–2012, ANR Systerra "ISARD") "Partial substitution of fertilizer by OWP use on Versailles plain and on Alluets plateau".

Clement Tschudy (2008 – 2011, MESR) "Expected effects of recent agricultural changes on weed flora nature and dynamic".

Nadler Simon (2008 – 2011, ADEME – Poitou-Charente region) "Reactivity of dissolved organic matter and mobility of pesticides in different contexts of soil use".

Clément Peltre (2007 – 2010; French Ministry of Research): "C storage potential after the input of exogenous organic matter; consequences for the quality of organic matter in soils".

Maha Chalhoub (2006 – 2009; French Ministry of Research): "Effect of the repeated input of composts on the hydrodynamic characteristics of a loamy soil; consequences on nitrate flows in the soil".

Jérémy Doublet (2005-2008, CIFRE CRPE): "Influence of the carbonaceous co-substrate on the nature of organic matter and forms of nitrogen in sludge composts; consequences on the fertilising and conditioning value of composts".

Mohamed Annabi (2002-2005, CIFRE CRPE): "Stabilisation of the structure of a loamy soil by inputs of urban waste composts: relationship with the characteristics of their organic matter".

Cédric Francou in collaboration with the ADEME (2000-2003): «  Characterisation of the organic matter in urban waste composts as a determinant of their ability to maintain the organic matter stock of soils and their nitrogen fertiliser value: link with the type of composted waste and the composting process".

Christine Vergé-Leviel (1998-2001, CIFRE CRPE) and Gwenaëlle Lashermes (2007-2010; ADEME-INRA-CRPE) on the fate of organic micropollutants during composting, then after the input of composts into the soil.
