Partnership agreement between Agropolis International and PROCISUR


PROCISUR (Cooperative Program for Agri-food and Agroindustrial Technological Development of the Southern Cone of IICA - Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture) is willing to develop collaborations with the regional scientific community within the framework of a partnership agreement signed at the end of 2010 with Agropolis International.

This program associates several National Agricultural Research Institutes (NARIs) of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay: INTA (Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria - Argentina); INIAF (Instituto Nacional de Innovación Agropecuaria y Forestal - Bolivia); EMBRAPA (Empresa Brasileira de Pesquisa Agropecuária - Brazil) ; INIA (Instituto de Investigaciones Agropecuarias - Chile); DIA (Dirección de Investigación Agrícola - Paraguay) ; INIA (Instituto Nacional de Investigación Agropecuaria - Uruguay).

Within the framework of its Medium Term Plan (PMP 2011-2014), PROCISUR implements seven technological platforms in several areas:

  • Sustainable use of natural resources and climate change,
  • Integrated quality food systems,
  • Water resources and irrigation technologies,
  • Genetic resources,
  • Family farming,
  • Use of new technologies (advanced biotechnologies , nanotechnologies, precision farming, ICTs),
  • Institutional innovations for development.

In this context, a PROCISUR delegation visited Agropolis International from Feb 6 to 10, 2012. The delegation included the PROCISUR Executive Director and the seven heads of the technological platforms. The program of the visit included plenary sessions at Agropolis International in presence of representatives of several research and higher education institutions, laboratories visits and meetings with researchers and research teams of Agropolis International scientific community. Cooperation projects in the field of the above platforms could be implemented on research, training, joint workshops or creation of networks.
