The scientific core team consists of permanent people from several laboratories. The orchidee core team has regular meeting (every two months) to discuss major orientations of the model development: these are called orchidee-projet meetings. Reports on these meetings are available on this page Reports ORCHIDEE project (private access, login to the wiki using your login forge). To contact the core developing team, please write to


These meetings take place every 2 months; they consist in a presentation of a specific subject, followed by discussions and questions. The subjects concern the development of a recent feature in ORCHIDEE that has been implemented in the main version or a new development not yet implemented. These meetings are always at Jussieu with possibility to connect by video conference. Reports on theses meetings are available on this page Reports ORCHIDEE Developer. Note that all user's are welcome to attend.
