The Agro Institute on the Montpellier campus has two facilities:  

Capp'O Sud (South-oriented Projects Support Unit) is one of the Montpellier Supagro ecosystem's facilities dedicated to innovation and entrepreneurship. Capp'O Sud is specifically dedicated to raising awareness and supporting business creation for economic development in Southern countries. Capp'O Sud is aimed at all project leaders in the South, who wish to settle in a country of Maghreb, Africa, Latin America or Asia, whether they are students or graduates or simply project leaders from a country of the South. It provides them with all the know-how, experience and professional relations that an institution with a strong international focus can offer in the fields of agronomy, agricultural development, agribusiness and environment, both in the North and the South, and directly at the service of entrepreneurship.

The Agro Valo Méditerranée incubator welcomes students, researchers, PhD students and any entrepreneur with an innovation to develop in partnership with a laboratory.
