We are writing to give you a unique opportunity to support the continuation of this remarkable publication and, at the same time, to receive formal recognition and a gift of the 2016 edition, delivered to your home. Publication of the first three INRAE Yearbooks was generously supported by the Mercator Foundation. Now that this funding has ended, we are excited to be using crowdfunding to cover the cost of publication for 2016. 

  • We invite you to visit our crowdfunding campaign by following this link –http://igg.me/at/inrae or look for the campaign called “Support Arts Education through Research” on Indiegogo. We will be very grateful for donations at any level and will recognize all donations of 10 Euros or more on a special donor’s page in the Yearbook, itself, and on our website. In addition, we will reward each donation of 50 Euros or greater with a gift of the 2016 INRAE Yearbook.
