  • Advance scientific knowledge, in close association with public and private research centers, main relevant technical-vocational centers and industrial partners

A young institute with over 180 years tradition

Founded on January 1st 2007 by the three following Graduate Institutes in Science and Engineering:

INA P-G - Institut National Agronomique Paris-Grignon
ENGREF – Ecole Nationale du Génie Rural, des Eaux et des Forêts
ENSIA – Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Industries Agricoles et Alimentaires

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. AgroParisTech is a founding member of the Université Paris-Saclay, together with 17 prestigious HEI and research institutes.
