Jacques Wery comes from the University of Montpellier, where he was Professor of Agronomy and Agricultural Systems. He has a vast expertise in Mediterranean crops and cropping systems. He led the development of innovative modelling and prototyping of cropping systems methods that are now widely used in the field. His interdisciplinary research approaches and systems analysis cover the plant, field, farm and supply chain levels.

Jacques has engaged in a number of key multidisciplinary initiatives. These include the UMR System with INRA and CIRAD on functional analysis and design of cropping systems, as well as the “seamless project” on integrated modelling of agricultural systems. He served as Executive Secretary of the European Society for Agronomy and Chair of the Farming Systems Design Network. He founded and chaired AgroSys, a joint venture between SupAgro and the private sector to design sustainable agricultural systems through capacity building.

He is since 2018 Deputy Director General for Research for ICARDA.
