The Agrimonde foresight project, thus defined, has been entrusted to an INRA-CIRAD project team coordinated by Sébastien Treyer, under the responsibility of the FI4IAR , with the following general objectives: 1) to design the modalities of strategic reflection based on a foresight approach, with the aim of illuminating research orientations in the fields of agriculture and food, in the broad sense of the term; 2) to initiate the process of debates and interactions on these topics, and their appropriation, on a national scale; 3) to promote the participation of French experts in international debates on the subject. To that end, the team has endeavoured to set up a permanent foresight tool through the creation of a platform for constructing, analysing and debating on scenarios. The first condition for the exercise to be realistic was of course that this tool had to function with existing data and results. The second condition was that the platform had to be constructed basically as a system of interaction with the experts, that is, researchers, deciders and, more generally, stakeholders and actors.
