The SAE2 division Units

The organization of the research device of the SAE2 Division focuses on three additional objectives, notably through its association strategy under the form of joint research units or multi-disciplinary division units.

  • Reinforce links with best French University centres in economics and sociology;
  • Reinforce association with departments of economics and management of French agronomic universities;
  • Reinforce inter-divisional links with multi-disciplinary collaborations in view.
