Network of greenhouses

RéSEPS is the network of the experimental platforms of growing plants in Paris Saclay.

The RéSEPS gathers three experimental platforms of greenhouses, located close to each other (Orsay and Gif-sur-Yvette), and belonging to the three laboratories:

  • Laboratoire Ecologie Systématique et Evolution
  • Institut de Biologie Intégrative de la Cellule
  • Institut des Sciences des Plantes de Paris-Saclay

The RéSEPS allows sharing technical equipments and promotes several stakes:

  • to reinforce collaborations for people working with plants in a purpose of research (plant model, tech-nical equipments)
  • to organize specific training courses in this domain
  • to propose the three experimental platforms of growing plants to other public or private research labora-tories
  • to promote technics for greenhouse that suit to sustainable development

The greenhouse of Plant Biology is located on the campus of University Paris-Sud at Orsay.
