The major highlights / significant events related to Cambioscop for the period January 1st 2022 to December 31st 2022 can be summarized as follows:


  • Publication of 7 papers in ISI journals (2: Science of the Total Environment (IF=7.963); 1: Nature Food (no IF yet); 1: Applied Energy (IF=9.746); 1: Nature Scientific Reports (IF=4.379); 1: Resources, Conservation and Recycling (IF=10.204); 1: Energy & Environmental Science (IF=38.53) )
  • Invited presentations of the project results in: 2 international conferences (Adebiotech March 2022 in Paris, Nordic Biogas Conference 2022 in Linkoping), one presentation linked with the MOPGA context (in Berlin, MOPGA final conference), 3 presentations in the context of local events in Toulouse (Assises de la Recherche en Ingénierie, Séminaire Supaero de l’aviation du future, Rassemblement IGEM organized by the EUR BioEco), and 3 within national events (Adebiotech Juillet 2022, Workshop “méthanisation-agroécologie” Oct. 2022, workshop organized by L’Oréal on sustainability assessments in March 2022)
  • One Cambioscop paper (from 2020: 10.1016/j.scitotenv.2019.136033) got, for the second year, the « Highly cited » label in Web of Sciences for field « Environment / Ecology ».
  • Three papers cited in IPCC AR6 (WGIII on mitigation), one being the Highly Cited paper mentioned above. The 2 others (10.1016/j.rser.2020.110506 ; 10.1111/gcbb.12733) are not a direct result of Cambioscop, but of efforts initiated before, although they include an acknowledgement to the project because of the time used by L. Hamelin during the revision process.
  • Four oral presentations (selected on competition, not invited) of the Cambioscop work at international conferences: 2 at LCA Foods 2022 in Peru by PhD students U. Javourez and G. Manulat, 1 at TSAS 2022 (Toulouse) by PhD student P. Su-Ungkavatin, and one by L. Hamelin at EUBCE 2022
  • Dissemination of results at national level, closer to policy & decision makers: (i) invited presentation at L’Oréal in Paris to discuss the details of the methodologies used within Cambioscop, and (ii) presentation by a PhD student at national INRAE LCA network event (January)
  • Graduation of 2 PhD students: Zhou Shen (co-supervisor, fully financed by a grant from the Chinese government, topic: bio-based materials from feedstock grown on marginal lands, defended in May 2022) and Pimchanok Su-Ungkavatin (main supervisor, partly financed by Cambioscop, topic: sustainable aviation, defended in December 2022)
  • Obtaining a new Horizon Europe project: duration 3 years, budget of ca. 400,000 EUR, start October 2022. Developing, based on the knowledge developed within Cambioscop, advanced Life Cycle Assessment methodologies to improve the evidence-based decision making with regards to the bio-based economy.  
  • Involvement in 2 « projets ciblés » (B-BEST, FAIRCN) in 2 “PEPR” (GALAXY-BIOPROD, SLAM-B). In the latter (SLAM-B), L. Hamelin is co-coordinator. The work to be done in both projects, the latter especially, are direct spin-off of Cambioscop.
  • Involvement in initiative Solnovo (; living lab on sustainable soil carbon enhancement on arable lands) as evaluator and as scientific partner (LCA)
  • L. Hamelin is laureate of an INRAE “Chaire de Professeur Junior » starting 1st September 2022 (Transitions intelligentes et durables vers des économies sans carbone fossile)
