Cartographie des sciences de l'alimentation au travers des publications académiques(1980-2018): vers quelles innovations les connaissances scientifiques orientent les légumineuses à graines en Europe ?

Abstract : Pulses are essential for the sustainability transition of agrifood system. Their nutritional values allow animalbased protein intake reduction and contribute to healthy diets. Moreover, increasing their cultivation reduces fertilizers' uses and so, greenhouse gases emissions. But in high-income countries, and particularly in Europe, pulses consumption is very low. Previous works explained the mechanisms that led to a strong lock-in on pulses compared to the development of major crops, calling for stronger research and innovation to develop alternative food based on pulses. Food innovation remains strongly linked to the scientific knowledge and understanding how research output could sustain food innovation dynamics for sustainability is challenging. Mobilising scientometrics, STS Science and Technology Studies(STS) and Food Sciences and Technology(FST) scholars, the aim of this interdisciplinary study is to conduct a first map of the pulses FST. Describing what are the main issues tackled by FST on pulses will give to stakeholders a better understanding of the opportunities and expectations that could emerge in the development of a new food industry sector on pulses, as it will help academic research to identify specific field of interest to invest into. We considered 16 main pulses to build a dataset of more than 2,000 scholarly publications including at least one European author(articles, book, book chapters, and reviews) between 1980 and 2018, retrieved from the Web of Knowledge(Clarivate Analytics). Based on "natural language processing" clusterisation method we defined the main research themes structuring of the FST on pulses. We show that pulses have become a specific subfield of interest for FST in Europe, organized around of a great variety of subjects, and we focus on identifying the current gaps and opportunities to question science and innovation policies for pulses.
