The members of MUSE and their African partners, local, regional or international, have established long-term collaborations, and in particular in the field of agroecology. This priority is at the heart of research, education, training and innovation agendas and is reflected in research projects, the implementation of training courses, the mobility of researchers and students, the involvement in innovation systems, in many countries.
