Agreements with 25 EU Member States, 80% of which have been signed under the ERASMUS programme, represent 40% of the overall total.
Agreenium is accredited to deliver the PhD in the context of the ABIES doctoral school. Registration and follow-up of doctoral students are done through AgroParisTech.
