The success of three years of collaborative work
The IDEX state funding is a major asset for the Université de Lyon and for the entire region. This award is fully in line with the strategy of the Lyon Saint-Étienne site, and is the result of nearly three years of teamwork driven by the Bureau de l’Université de Lyon. But above all, it is a collective success thanks to the outstanding contribution of the internal and external partners: faculty and staff members, local authorities, all the socio-economic partners, as well as the students. This synergy and cooperation throughout the entire ecosystem are at the heart of the project." >>> Read more (Université de Lyon website)
