Build an internationally renowned innovation campus by 2025
Their objectives are clear: start-ups, SMEs and industries must be able to find in the Agropôle an accelerator, enabling them to create, implement and disseminate their innovations with agility and at a lower cost. All this for the benefit of the environment, the economy and consumers.
