CIRAD's scientific teams contribute to numerous initial training courses, primarily Masters or engineering degrees, in France and elsewhere. They are also heavily involved in PhD- and post-doc-level training through research.
Teaching and training
Training through research, internships, PhD theses and post-docs is particularly important in view of CIRAD’s remit.

Lastly, CIRAD leads many projects to build skills – whether technical, expertise-related or institutional – and works in partnership with university consortiums or higher education establishments.
