I-Site: excellence rewarded for the Nantes project

du February 24, 2017 au April 30, 2017

The Nantes-based NExT (Nantes Excellence Trajectory) project was selected, on 24 February 2017, by an international jury to become an I-SITE within the PIA 2 - Investment for the Future Programme.

Led by the University of Nantes, Centrale Nantes, Nantes University Hospital and Inserm, the NExT project aims to make Nantes a world-class university site, recognized for its expertise in research, training and innovation on two major and interdisciplinary societal issues: future health (innovative biotherapies, nuclear medicine and cancer, precision medicine etc) and the industry of the future (advanced production technologies, ocean engineering etc).

Nantes is now well placed to become a world-class university site. Arnaud Poitou, Director of Centrale Nantes, welcomes this recognition: "With this ambitious mainstay project, we will make Nantes a world-class university site of excellence in health and engineering. It is the fulfilment of a collective project, supported by the shared vision of the project partners with the creation of the new university in Nantes. For Centrale Nantes, NExT sets out the vision of a European institution engaged in a global dynamic, supporting both science and technology, and their interface with other subjects, such as the social sciences and health."

The other partners in the initiative - IMT, Oniris, ICO, Ifsttar and Inra - will contribute to the implementation and governance of NExT.

Funded within the framework of the PIA 2 (Investment for the Future Programme), the objective of the IDEX/I-SITE calls for projects is to create universities which develop scientific strengths that are more focused, distinctive, and recognized on the international level, and that create leverage and support for their development strategy and their industrial partnerships.
