JUNON is an ambitious research programme to develop a digital research cluster on the continental environment (agricultural, urban, forestry and river) in the Centre-Val de Loire region.

This cluster aims to design digital services to improve the monitoring and understanding of the environment, for better management of natural resources.

JUNON is led by BRGM, the French geological survey, (Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières), and involves five research organisations and numerous laboratories (Centre INRAE Val de Loire, CNRS, University of Orléans, University of Tours). It also involves non-academic partners, such as the DREAM water and environment competitiveness cluster, the Agreen Tech Valley cluster, Orléans-Val de Loire Technopôle and LE STUDIUM IAS.

JUNON is a continuation of the ARD 2020 PIVOTS programme, which has promoted the emergence of seven experimental platforms dedicated to monitoring, environmental metrology and remediation of the various anthropised environments (subsoil/soil/water/air).
