Innovating for agricultures in transition

Our agriculture draws and colours our territories. They shape our identities and are plural, diverse and complementary.

Agriculture and those who process or distribute it must, at the same time, feed a growing world population, meet our demands for quality and transparency, and do so in a changing world and a context of dwindling global resources.

Agricultural stakeholders play a key role in the preservation of our biodiversity and resources. In return, the entire agricultural skills chain must be able to rely on sustainable and remunerative models.

To support these necessary transitions, Le Village by CA Nord de France and 12 of its partners, including Crédit Agricole Nord de France, have joined forces and launched the "Agricultures en Transition" call for applications.

All start-ups working on these transitions and whose solution is applicable to agriculture in the Hauts-de-France are invited to apply. The best projects will be selected by our jury and will be integrated into the unique ecosystem of the Village by CA Nord de France to benefit from its support as well as qualified contacts with its partners. The winners will also join the Villages by CA network (the first start-up accelerator scheme in France).
