The establishment initiated the first French university foundation in agricultural sciences, "SupAgro Fondation", the UNESCO Chair on World Food Systems and three Chairs: AgroTIC, AgroSYS, and Elsa-PACT.
Framework agreements for cooperation and educational exchange have been signed with institutions in some 30 countries in order to set up support systems for the training programs. The institution coordinates two international consortiums supporting Erasmus Mundus accredited master’s programs.
Montpellier SupAgro contributes to agricultural research thanks to the involvement of its researcher-professors in 22 research units and 4 joint technology units. Montpellier SupAgro's scientific teams collaborate closely with major research organizations based in Montpellier (INRAE, CIRAD, IRD...) and regional higher education institutions (University of Montpellier, Paul Valéry University, University via Domitia of Perpignan, CIHEAM-IAMM...). It also manages two experimental agricultural platforms (viticulture, sheep farming, olive cultivation) dedicated to R & D and exchanges with professionals.
SupAgro Fondation aims to gather interested businesses, partner institutions, students and graduates to work alongside l'Institut Agro Montpellier to tackle agronomic challenges.
The historic l'Institut Agro Montpellier campus is being transformed to meet the needs of new training programmes which require open, shared and connected space. These changes are being made while respecting the superb environmental quality of the campus, and by maintaining coherence between the establishment’s different sites.
In addition, practicing a sport fosters the development of multiple skills related to setting up and implementing projects. Sports activities are therefore taken into account in the first year engineering training curriculum and validated through BDS Sports, an attractive, dynamic and responsible association.
Extra-curricular activities contribute to students' overall well-being and help them develop skills and know-how useful for their future careers.
