CoSAC has 7 partners.

The consortium includes four INRA units (Agroecology, LAE, PSH, EcoInnov), two are associated with schools (AgroSup Dijon) and universities (Burgundy, Lorraine), and includes three technical institutes (ACTA, ARVALIS, CETIOM).

4 other research units will be associated through collaborations and subcontracting, the UMR SAD-APT (INRA-AgroParisTech), the Climatology Research Center (UMR6282 Biogeosciences, CNRS / UB,), the UR MIAs of the INRA Jouy and Toulouse (RECORD Platform), and 3 private companies, In Vivo Agrosolutions (plant R & D subsidiary of the InVivo cooperative union), AIRINOV (company specializing in agridrone) and Sat-Info (company specializing in signal GPS).
The consortium covers all the scientific disciplines required for the project (agronomy, ecology, modeling, statistics, climatology, ecophysiology, see section 1.2); it also makes it possible to better integrate actors by bringing together researchers, research professors, experts from technical institutes and advisers. Several partners (Agroecology, EcoInnov, ACTA, ARVALIS, CETIOM ...) and collaborators (InVivo, UNIP, ITB ...) are already working together in the context of the RMT Florad12, SDCi19, Modelia25 and GIS HP2E.

It is this multidisciplinary involvement that will not only produce the knowledge, tools and solutions necessary to meet our objective but also to adapt them to the realities of the field. The involvement of the agricultural profession is a necessary asset, making it possible to identify the socio-economic determinants of the adoption of the proposed innovations.
