Innovation as a response to contemporary challenges

We believe in Innovation as a response to contemporary challenges that transcend the agro-industrial sectors

  • Contributing to the world’s food and bioresources supply
  • Decarbonizing our production systems and adapting them to the changing climate
  • Combining ‘human health through nutrition’, “animal health and welfare”, and ”plant and environmental health”
  • Organizing territorial value chains thereby making our economy more circular

A unique network in Europe

Agri SudOuest Innvation continues to play a leading role as a partner in the European projects, as well as in local, regional and European initiatives. We are engaged to manage european projects from, for exemple, the COSME program (HORIZON 2020) via AURORA, the I3 instrument dedicated to Interregional Innovation Investments via HIGHFIVE, or Interreg Europe. We are also in constant contact with other clusters and public bodies that cover the entire food value chain.
