An AgroVallée project in Montpellier for the first half of 2016

 

Languedoc-Roussillon is one of the few regions in Europe to have designated agriculture and agrifood as smart specialisation areas (SRI-S3, under the European FEDER 2014-2020 Programme).

The AgroVallée project aims to make Montpellier and its region a seedbed of sustainable Mediterranean and tropical agriculture innovation, a Mediterranean and tropical plant biorefinery leader, and to develop sites to host these initiatives and expertise.

 

AGROVALLÉE RELIES IN LANGUEDOC- ROUSSILLON REGION ON:

  • scientific excellence and a critical mass of research and training (top ranked national agroenvironmental research cluster - source: Strater 2014)
  • a dense network of innovation and transfer stakeholders
  • exceptional dynamics for collaborative research/business and innovative business creation projects.

 

OBJECTIVES OF AGROVALLÉE:

AgroVallée offers a single gateway to the regional innovation environment and intends to provide a seamless, comprehensive and coordinated range of services to:

  • revitalise research/business collaborations to create tomorrow’s innovations
  • accompany regional SMEs in their efforts to sell regionally developed innovations worldwide
  • attract investors from outside the region (French and foreign) to kindle job creation.

 

ROLE OF AGROPOLIS INTERNATIONAL IN THE AGROVALLÉE PROJECT:

The Agropolis International Association is preparing to represent university/research stakeholders in the regional innovation environment, which also involves the business community and regional and local authorities (Languedoc-Roussillon Regional Council, Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole, etc.).
