The creation of this competition follows on from the opening of the Centre Mondial de l’Innovation Roullier at the end of 2015. A true driver of growth and a major player in the field of Plant and Animal Nutrition, it brings together around one hundred doctors and researchers from across the globe. Its opening also accelerated the number of international scientific partnerships, which increased from 70 to more than 100 in just a few months.
