The agriculture sector faces major challenges (food security, pressures on natural resources, etc.) which result in strong social, ecological and economic implications. Research and innovation help this domain to be more sustainable through innovation systems which exploit the existing knowledge and its underpinning information flow.
In ViLabs we meet this interesting challenge by offering management, knowledge diffusion, and innovation support and exploitation services.
