Networks and partnerships

UniLaSalle is an engineering school operating under an agreement with the French Ministries of Agriculture, Food & Forestry and Higher Education & Research.


As a member of the International Association of Lasallian Universities, it belongs to several educational and scientific networks and has developed strong partnerships at local, national and international level.

Academic networks
  • Institut Catholique de Paris (ICP), as a federation of higher education establishments. The ICP, a university founded in 1875, has six faculties, four specialist institutes and several research centers.
  • The French Conférence des Grandes Écoles (CGE), an association of more than 180 higher education institutions which the CGE promotes at national and international level, facilitating exchanges and mutual assistance and defending their interests to public authorities.
International networks
  • The International Association of Lasallian Universities (IALU) is a network of 72 universities worldwide, all linked by the same values. The association promotes student mobility and collaborative educational, research and development projects.
  • IROICA /ICA (Association for European Life Science Universities) is an association of more than 60 universities and higher education establishments across Europe specializing in areas related to agriculture, food and the environment.
  • « Study in Picardy » (previously the Association for the Development of External Relations in Higher Education Establishments in the Picardy Region – AREPIC) promotes the development of international relations for higher education establishments in Picardy.
  • The Global Confederation of Higher Education Associations for Agricultural and Life Sciences (GCHERA) is a global network of universities specializing in agriculture, with more than 400 member institutions.

1.3 million students attend an institution belonging to the LaSalle network worldwide.


Scientific networks
  • Industries and Agro-Resources competitive cluster: this cluster, officially set up in July 2005, has a global outlook and is composed of companies, schools and research structures in agro-industry in the Picardy and Champagne-Ardenne regions.
  • Center of Expertise for the Greater Paris Region on Life Sciences and Technologies: LaSalle Beauvais worked in partnership with research teams from AgroParisTech and the ENSIA National School of Agricultural and Food Industries for the « ICARE » project, funded under the European Commission’s FP6 program.
  • Agricultural Transfer, Resources and Land, an application platform and transfer network for agronomy research, brings together economic stakeholders, higher education and research organizations and representatives of civil society. It was set up on the initiative of the Picardy Regional Council, the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) and the Picardy Chambers of Agriculture and applies its experience and expertise to promote the sustainable development of agro-resources.
Three examples of cooperation in Brazil, Colombia and the Philippines

In Brazil, UniLaSalle is involved in several initiatives with its « sister » universities in its three specialist areas:

  • Unilasalle Rio de Janeiro and La Salle Manaus for mining, oil and the environment;
  • La Salle Lucas do Rio Verde (Mato Grosso) for agro-industry;
  • Unilasalle Canoas (Porto Alegre) for food and health.

In Colombia, UniLaSalle is involved in the development of Utopía at the University of La Salle, Bogota, which provides a free four-year training course in agronomy engineering. The program is geared towards young Colombians from disadvantaged rural areas beset by problems related to drugs and violence. UniLaSalle provides scientific and technical assistance, especially in hydrogeology and agroecology.

In the Philippines, nine La Salle universities have decided to join forces with UniLaSalle to develop the Food Institute project, which has three main aims:

  • To provide training covering all agricultural sectors, from producer to consumer;
  • To coordinate research activities based on large-scale projects;
  • To step up the development of relations with industry.
Partner universities worldwide

UniLaSalle currently has over 120 partner universities, 45 in Europe and 78 outside Europe, in the fields of agriculture, geology, nutrition and health, at undergraduate and graduate level.

The partnerships cover both teaching (exchanges of students and teaching staff, joint training programs, etc.) and research (joint activities and publications, etc.).
