Supporting the environmental and digital transition of French agriculture with and for farmers!

Historical and active partners of the agricultural world, Groupama Paris Val de Loire and the Institut Polytechnique UniLaSalle have joined forces since 2014, for the creation and development of a research and teaching Chair on "Risk Management in Agriculture".

Visionary and passionate, the founders and the team of the Chair in Risk Management in Agriculture have never ceased to defend the fact that risk management has become and remains a major issue in a context marked by profound changes (technological, climatic, societal).

  • Together with farmers, the Chair in Agricultural Risk Management continues to co-produce knowledge useful to agriculture, society and the general interest;   
  • For farmers, it is constantly expanding its partnerships, improving its methodology and enriching its study of the environmental and digital transition of French agriculture.
