AgroParisTech visit to Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech
On Monday May 22, the deanery authorities of Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech welcomed a delegation from AgroParisTech, a French Grand école with which our faculty has forged strong links over many years. This was in particular to follow up on the Dean's visit to the AgroParisTech campus in their new buildings on the Saclay campus in July 2022.
The Paris delegation, made up of AgroParisTech Director General Laurent Buisson, Director of Training Émilie Lebrasseur and Director of International and European Relations Marine Godaux, visited the Gembloux campus and met a number of faculty members active in teaching and research.
While a double degree has already been in progress between the engineering curriculum in Paris and the various Bioengineering Masters at Gembloux for over 10 years, this meeting provided an opportunity to discuss current relations (including joint participation in the Master Erasmus Mundus BIOCEB), as well as to talk about stepping up research activities between the two institutions. It is planned to organize a meeting between researchers from AgroParisTech and Gembloux Agro-Bio Tech in the coming months to strengthen participation in European research projects.
