On Thursday 3rd October, UniLaSalle Rouen inaugurated the AGRORTECH Competence Center « dedicated to the valorization and characterization of Agro-Resources in bio-based materials ».
UniLaSalle commits itself and dedicates all its actions in support of the energetic, agro-ecological, digital and food transitions of the territories with the perspectives to cope with massive challenges of the XXI century: climate change, preservation of the natural resources and territorial balances.
These societal issues challenge the research and beyond. So, there is dire need of capacity building and trainingin order to identify sustainable solutions and support sectors in their process of innovation and economic development.
To this end, UniLaSalle has just inaugurated a technological platform dedicated to the valorization of biomass and the innovation of bio-based materials.
In this regard, sustainable development is an axis on which we must focus our research and share with general public, research community and our students in academic institutions. « For Philippe Choquet, General Manager of UniLaSalle, » the AGRORTECH center is a project which is inclined towards this direction! «
DESIGN OTHERWISE WITH OUR RESOURCES
UniLaSalle, conducting numerous collaborative programs to link the « Industrial » and « Agricultural » worlds, aims to train various stakeholders in new sectors and to design the materials of tomorrow in the future.
This platform of innovation and training will have applications in the areas where the environmental expectations are important and on which our research units are already working: Automotive, Packaging or Building (In this respect, UniLaSalle and the Metropole Rouen Normandie coordinate the coalition of « actors » for bio-based materials « carried by COP21).
To cope with the challenges, pillar of the AMBIOS Normandy Research and Training Chair was inaugurated in 2017 While, AGRORTECH will further broaden our field of expertise and respond to the recent requirements of our clients.
