Within the framework of the Avignon University Residence programme, the UMR IMBE welcomes for one year Grégory Mahy, Professor at the University of Liège in Belgium.

From mid-September 2021 and for one year, the UMR IMBE (Mediterranean Institute of Biodiversity and Marine and Continental Ecology) welcomes in its premises of the IUT of Avignon, Mr. Gregory Mahy, professor at the University of Liege in Belgium in order to strengthen the collaborations that already exist for many years between his team and that of the ecologists of the IUT of Avignon.

During his stay, Mr. Grégory Mahy will develop research in ecological engineering applied to the restoration of agro-ecosystems via the development of facilitating biotic interactions (nurse species, ecosystem engineer species, etc.). He will also participate in the team's conceptual reflections on the restoration/re-wilding of natural areas.

This stay is made possible thanks to the Residence programme of Avignon University. The « Pôle Ingénierie de Projets de Recherche et Développement International » accompanies the invited researchers in their installation in Avignon.

The Residence programme

Avignon University supports invitations to foreign researchers and teacher-researchers, of international influence, for a period of 8 to 12 months. This program aims to develop sustainable and productive international collaborations in the priority areas of the institution's scientific project.
