In order to contribute to the achievement of the Ecophyto II+ Plan, by using research results, the Ministries of Higher Education and Research, of Agriculture and Food Sovereignty, of Ecological Transition and of Territorial Cohesion, Health and Prevention, are launching a third edition of the Ecophyto - Maturation call for proposals.
The goal of the “Maturation” calls is to support the valorization of scientific work successfully completed in a previous research program. The objective is to bring a breakthrough solution to a level allowing its appropriation through products, technologies, methodologies or services. More specifically, consortia are encouraged to develop research that demonstrates the operationality of a solution in a real environment and which meets the needs of the end users.
On a technology readiness level (TRL) scale, projects must be based on initial work having reached a TRL of 4 and aim, for a TRL of 6 or higher at the end of the projects.
The proposals must address innovations in support of national Ecophyto plan and be in line with the objective of reducing plant protection products by at least 50% and/or reducing the associated risks and impacts on health or the environment.
The targeted innovations must refer to one of the agroecology levers allowing, directly or indirectly, to reduce the use and impacts of phytosanitary inputs from synthetic chemistry, such as for example:
Finally, any innovation which is not on the previous list but which contributes to the Ecophyto II+ Plan thanks to a solution with a TRL greater than 6 at the end of the project, will be eligible to apply for this call.
The consortia must include at least one "research organization or similar" partner and at least one "socio-economic " partner (private companies, technical centers and institutes, professional organizations, chambers, associations, etc.).
The first step of this 2-steps-call, "letter of intent", is mandatory to allow the submission of the detailed proposal in second step.
The description of the projects, funded in the previous editions, is available on the portal EcophytoPic, where you can also find the web-page dedicated to the programme animation day (on the 4th of October 2022).

The appelsprojetsrecherche.fr portal centralises all information on calls for proposals and calls for applications from ADEME, ANR, Inserm including ANRS, Anses and INCa. It provides a simplified access to upcoming and ongoing calls, giving a greater visibility to funding opportunities. Following their closing date, the calls remain published for a few months.
