The LabEx

Towards a unified theory of biotic interactions: role of environmental perturbations

The TULIP LabEx project was selected during the first wave of the "French stimulus initiative", which rested on a demanding selection for projects directly funded by the ANR, the French National Research Agency. Winner in the category of "LABoratory of EXcellence" (or LabEx), it established high quality research and education in the field of ecology and plant biology in the French Occitanie region.

This Labex promotes an interdisciplinary approach, combining biology and ecology, and focusing on the interactions between organisms within communities, in natural or human modified environments. The objectives of this project are the following:

  1. Strengthen research of excellence,
  2. Improve the attractiveness of its laboratories,
  3. Structure local research,
  4. Regroup its constituting laboratories to foster the emergence of new concepts and applications in environmental technologies.
  5. The final goal lies in gathering these projects and fostering the emergence of new concepts and applications in environmental technologies.

Gathering seven laboratories of excellence in Agrobiosciences and Environmental Sciences in Toulouse, Perpignan and Moulis, TULIP aggregates more than 600 peoples belonging to INRAE, CNRS, Paul Sabatier University, INP-ENSAT and Perpignan Via Domitia University, all statuses included.

• See the structures involved >>>

The TULIP LabEx was selected above all on the basis of the quality of its projects and the publications of its partner laboratories.

• See some of our major scientific publications >>>

The TULIP LabEx has also the vocation to create training programmes, either through a residential summer school or by creating an international Master's degree.
