Multiple Campuses of AgroParisTech:

AgroParisTech has forged multiple alliances with other corresponding institutions: The institute is a founder member of: ParisTech which brings together 10 graduate engineering schools, and one graduate management school in science and technology and prioritises collective activities in particular on an international level and with industry, and Agreenium which brings together the major actors in research and higher education in life sciences and technology and the environment.
As multi-centre institute, AgroParisTech is strongly implicated in different territorial organisations which are linked to its themes (Communities of universities and institutions) which have resulted from the French 2013 law on higher education and research, especially that of the Université Paris-Saclay.
