The Research Unit "SMART-LERECO" was officially created on January 2017 in the continuity of a scientific project that brought together, throughout the period 2011-2016, economists from the Unit SMART of Rennes and the Unit LERECO of Nantes. This Research Unit brings together some 60 people (including about 30 researchers and teachers-researchers) from INRA's SAE2 department (at the Rennes and Nantes sites) and Agrocampus-Ouest (Sites of Rennes and Angers).

The shared ambition of our collective is to create a research and teaching group in economy of agriculture, agri-food and environment, recognized internationally for the quality of its work not only academic but also in expertise. Our scientific project aims to give priority to four themes: the behavior of agricultural producers and public regulations; Markets, agriculture and development; Industrial strategies of agri-food enterprises in a globalized economy; Organization and performance of agricultural and food chains.
