Visit of Campinas delegation (Brazil) to Agropolis International (Montpellier-France), 24 to 27 November 2015

 

Following the signature in June 2015 of an agreement for scientific and technical cooperation between Agropolis International and several Brazilian organizations of Campinas agro-cluster (UNICAMP, Techno Park Campinas, Secretary of State for Agriculture, SDECTI and Campinas Town Council), a delegation of representatives have visited Campus Agropolis in Montpellier, from 24 to 27 November 2015.

The visit aimed at getting a better understanding of the organization of Agropolis cluster, in particular of the association Agropolis International in order to help the implementation of Agropolo in Campinas (Brazil).

 

The delegation included :

  • Sergio Augusto Morais Carbonell, director of Campinas Agronomic Institute (IAC) and Agropolo executive secretary
  • Luis Madi, director of Campinas Instituto de Tecnologia de Alimentos (ITAL)
  • Carlos Colombo, IAC researcher.

 

The members of the delegation met a wide range of stakeholders from Agropolis International member institutions, involved in research (Cirad, IRD, IRSTEA), higher education (Montpellier SupAgro) and the economic development (Montpellier Agglomération including BIC and MIBI,…).


They paid special attention to the organization of research within the Joint Research Units/UMR (they visited several UMRs: AGAP, Qualisud, BioWooeb, G-Eau, ITAP), to common platforms (Remote Sensing platform/Maison de la Télédétection) and also to specific organizations like a Technology Transfer Acceleration Company.(SATT-LR) and the virtual/external laboratories hosted at Agropolis (Labintex INTA/Argentina).


The visit concluded with an agreement on the elaboration of a future road sheet aiming at developing the collaboration between the two clusters.

The next step will be the visit of two French delegations to Campinas: one delegation with representatives of Agropolis international will deal with technical issues and participate in a workshop about Agropolo; another delegation will deal with the “political” issues.
