Partnership ChairsApril 25 2022
Partnership chairs to build the future together.
Getting involved in research and innovation.
Creating or taking part in an AgroParisTech partnership chair is an opportunity to bring complementary expertise together to serve a shared objective, an effective process for grasping complex issues. Together, we can develop innovative long-term solutions to confront the major challenges that lie ahead.
The collaborative establishment of a tailor-made partnership chair—a process covered by the AgroParisTech Sponsorship Charter and Ethics Charter—enables us, working hand in hand, to address issues of general interest that serve the community at large.
Setting the Course Together
And taking time to achieve our goals. Whether it involves identifying the subject to be dealt with by the chair or designing the chair’s project (defining objectives, activities, resources, budget, performance indicators), the guiding principles for the process should always be flexibility and collaboration, as they are vital to ensuring that partners remain on the same page so that the major challenges facing the planet can be overcome.
