The founding members of the CVT Valorisation Sud are the Centre for International Centre for Cooperation in Agronomic Research for Development (CIRAD), the Institut Pasteur, the Research for Development Institute (IRD) and the universities of tropical French overseas territories (West Indies, Guyana, Island Reunion, New Caledonia and French Polynesia).
The installations or representations of these establishments abroad and overseas offer as many support centres as possible for the action of the CVT Valorisation Sud.
The Conference of University Presidents (CPU) joined the consortium in 2014, as an associate member.
The Institut de recherche pour le développement (IRD), an internationally recognised multidisciplinary organisation working primarily in partnership with Mediterranean and intertropical countries, is a French public research establishment under the joint authority of the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research and Innovation and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Via its network and presence in fifty or so countries, it takes an original approach to research, expertise, training and knowledge-sharing, to the benefit of countries and regions that make science and innovation key drivers in their development.
Created in 1887, the Institut Pasteur is an international research and teaching institute, based in France, at the centre of the future progress of science, medicine and public health. A non-profit foundation recognised as a public utility, the Institut Pasteur accomplishes four major general interest missions: research, education, the health of populations and individuals, the development of innovation and the transfer of technology.
The University of the West Indies is the result of the transformation of the University of the West Indies and Guyana (created in 1982) by the Act of 25 June 2015. Established in two distinct territories: Guadeloupe, which is a region-department, and Martinique which is a territorial community, it employs 484 teacher-researchers and has more than 12,000 students.
The University of New Caledonia (UNC) is a multidisciplinary University present in New Caledonia since its creation in 1987 under the name the French University of the Pacific, in reference to the single entity then constituted with French Polynesia. In 1999, it became autonomous in respect of French Polynesia and became the University of New Caledonia.
The University of French Polynesia (UPF) has been an autonomous university since 1999, located in Tahiti, the political and administrative centre and economic area of French Polynesia.
