A network of experts

The AGRIBALYSE® program brings together a network of experts who support you in understanding and disseminating the work (documentation, training, technical days).

AGRIBALYSE® data are complex. Scientific indicators are not understandable at first sight by non-experts in environmental sciences. Extensive documentation is available, as well as a network of experts by your side to help you use this work.

Before contacting us for any questions relating to the AGRIBALYSE® program and the database, we ask you to read the documentation available on this website, the answer to your question can be found there !

If the answer is not there, you can contact the teams in charge of the AGRIBALYSE® program via the email address: agribalyse@ademe.fr

Depending on your question, we will redirect you to the most suitable experts: experts members of the AGRIBALYSE® steering committee, our partners from agricultural and food technical institutes, consultants specialized in Life Cycle Analysis and trained in the use of the AGRIBALYSE® database...
