3/ UNESCO Chair in World Food Systems

A partnership to create a Chair in World Food Systems ("Alimentations du Monde, ADM") in Montpellier was created at the initiative of Montpellier SupAgro, one of Agropolis Fondation’s charter members, and several members of Agropolis International. Approved by the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in May 2011, the activities associated with this chair starts in autumn 2011 with the financial support of Agropolis Fondation.
It is through the active support of the French National Commission for UNESCO and of the members of Agropolis International, foreign universities, the Regional Council of Languedoc-Roussillon and the association Terroirs & Cultures, that the ADM Chair has obtained UNESCO endorsement.
The UNESCO/UNITWIN (University Twinning and Networking Programme) Chairs are intended to contribute to the development of education, research, and the transfer of knowledge, to which UNESCO adds a “Think Tank” role that generates ideas for debate. The objective is to create an international structure of centers of expertise. In September 2011, 715 UNESCO Chairs and 69 UNITWIN Networks had been established in over 830 institutions in 131 countries.
Montpellier currently has 30 training programmes, including the Vinifera Euromaster, and research laboratories working in the field of food systems that will be able to work with the UNESCO Chair in World Food Systems, in partnership with a dozen foreign universities.
Coordination is planned with the UNESCO Chairs on "Preservation and Development of Food Heritage and Culture" at the University François Rabelais at Tours, and on "Wine Culture and Traditions" that was created in 2007 in Dijon.

The objective of the Chair is to contribute to the construction of more sustainable food systems in the world. The Chair will develop a knowledge base by mobilizing research in biotechnical science laboratories and in social sciences in the UNITWIN network. The activities programmed for the ADM Chair include: establishment of educational courses on the basis of European credits (ECTS) at Montpellier SupAgro and the French and foreign institutions in the UNITWIN network; launch of a travelling international training module on strategic approaches to food security; creation of an Award for students' work; organization of an annual international seminar on current topics in world food systems; hosting of foreign teachers and researchers; and creation of a website dedicated to the UNESCO ADM Chair.
Using these tools, the goal of the UNESCO ADM Chair is to increase and disseminate academic and empirical knowledge of food systems in the world, their diversity, their dynamics and their human and environmental impact from a sustainable development perspective, through a multidisciplinary approach applied at different levels of governance (local, national, and international).
