UniLaSalle & NatUp held their first graduation ceremony for continuing education on agroecology and sustainable farm management.

In November 2021, NatUp committed itself to deliver an agronomist training to all its field advisors. Certified by the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles, this training was implemented by UniLaSalle. 

A few words about NatUp

The cooperative accompanies its members in the agro-ecological transition and has committed itself with UniLaSalle to deliver training as an agronomist to all its field advisors by the end of 2024.

Graduation of the first group of the training

On Friday 13 January, UniLaSalle and NatUp had the pleasure of celebrating the first 9 graduates of this training course, on the school's campus in Rouen, in the presence of the new President of NatUp, Antoine Declercq, the General Manager, Patrick Aps, and the entire management team of the cooperative.

For Pierre Ouvry, Director of Agriculture of the NatUp Group, this training is more than essential for its advisors.   

"This course has been particularly enriching and has allowed us to open up to other worlds than the agricultural world we know. NatUp also offers its employees the opportunity to pursue an engineering course at UniLaSalle, which represents a real opportunity for some.   

A big thank you and congratulations to this first class!"
