The partnership with State services
Irstea enjoys a close relationship with the main ministries, local authorities and other organisations.
Support adapted to the new needs of public action
Irstea is a public targeted research organisation, clearly and fully recognised within the national and European scientific community. Its works ensure it the necessary legitimacy to get involved with significant projects in response to society's demands and in support of public policies. It provides support for central and decentralised ministerial services, divisional local authorities, agencies and public establishments.
Recent support operations
Some examples of recent support operations: support in the implementation of the DCE (European Water Framework Directive), the production of documents, software development etc.
Irstea implements support actions dedicated to central and decentralised services from the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fishing (MAAP) in response to their needs: Sinfotech is the dedicated support website.
Technical consultation committees
To better ensure the relevance of its research and development programmes as well as the transfer of skills, know-how and results, Irstea is organising six topic-based consultation committees to support public policies.
