Research Federations and Federative Research Structures

Three research federations (RF) AND and a federative research structure (SFR) support the scientific activity of Avignon University.

They bring together, around university laboratories, major research organizations (INRAE, CNRS, EHESS), competitiveness clusters, and companies to put research and innovation at the service of social and economic development.


The research conducted by the SFR related to the Agro & Sciences field, called Tersys, concerns all aspects of the production of plants or natural products. This federation is jointly supported by Avignon University and INRAE PACA-Corse.
