Student life


A rich and dynamic environment devoted to supporting the success and excellence of its student members.

a student life

Our student members speak of INAF as a human, collegial, and elite training environment pushing its members to surpass themselves by offering opportunities to acquire competencies beyond their academic training.

One way in which students can seize learning opportunities is through active participation in the scientific and social animation of their community.


Create a
sense of belonging

When the sanitary conditions permit, our community likes to organize festive and unifying social activities.

The integration of our new members is important: back-to-school activities, student committee activities, picnics and much more!

Any scientific activity can also be paired with a nice meal to share in a good mood, like our Friday chats.

And the parties? Our social committees are not sitting doing anything, with seasonal activities such as the winter ball and its unhinged costumes. Fun and laughter guaranteed!


to participate

Thanks to a very active student committee, many opportunities for student involvement are offered to you, whether as a member or as a volunteer for INAF events or in partnership with our Institute.

Events such as BÉNÉFIQ put forward collaborations between research actors and the bio-food industry, just as many formative opportunities for our student members.

Organizing events
By and for students

Our Institute values and supports scientific activities and student initiatives that enrich our environment and have benefits for our members, the broader university community as well as the general public.

Whether it is a drop in motivation, anxiety, or a change in lifestyle habits, the effects of the current crisis can be numerous and of varying degrees. No matter how extensive is your situation, do not particularly hesitate to consult the different resources available and ask for help if needed.
