13 Nov 2019


A few minutes from Paris in the department of Seine-Saint-Denis, the crops Tour of Romainville should see the light of day by the end of the year. Committed for a long time to the development of urban agriculture on its territory, the municipality has developed this innovative project to promote the development of a new economic sector, creating jobs, and to ensure a strong awareness of the inhabitants to sustainable food.

Dominique Bonet-Fernandez, Professor at IPAG and Head of the Logistics, International Trade and Information Systems Department, presents in this video the involvement of the various actors and the role of IPAG in this project supported by the Chair of Collaborative Economy. Alongside AgroParisTech and INRA, IPAG brings a managerial dimension to this urban and vertical agriculture project.
