Why work with them / What was done

IRD is a public scientific and technological establishment (EPST), the Research Institute for Development is placed under the dual supervision of the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation and that of Europe and Foreign Affairs. Established in 1944, the Institute celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2019. IRD-CERES team collaborates with national and international teams, especially in the frame of two joint international laboratories - the LMI LAPSE in Senegal and the LMI RICE in Vietnam and through an active partnership with ICRISAT, AfricaRice, and CGIAR research centers. CERES team from IRD (Dr. Vincent Vadez) is expertise in plant hydraulics, high throughput phenotyping, genetics, and crop modeling and these disciplines were integrated into crop improvement programs. ICRISAT-IRD-CERES joint collaboration helps to develop phenotyping methods for drought adaptive traits and genetic mapping studies.
