SDG9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure


Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation.

Centrale Nantes decided to assess the current state of integration of sustainable development into its initial and continuing training courses, and to clarify the contribution of training activities to sustainable development objectives (objective 2.1 of the Sustainable Development Action Plan - 2021).

Course supervisors have thus pinpointed 2 key SDGs to which their courses contribute.

ODD9 is the most frequently cited for the general engineering programme, with regard to both core courses and specialisations.
