A pioneer in ocean science, IFREMER's cutting-edge research is grounded in sustainable development and open science.His vision is to advance science, expertise and innovation to protect and restore the ocean, sustainably use marine resources to benefit societ, create and share ocean data, information & knowledge.
With more than 1,500 personnel spread along the French coastline in more than 20 sites, the institute explores the 3 great oceans: the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
Founded in 1984, IFREMER is a French public organization and its budget approximates 240 million euros. It is operating under the joint authority of the French Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Innovation, the French Ministry for the Ecological and Solidary Transition, and the French Ministry of Agriculture and Food.
Website Centrale Nantes
In keeping with the prestigious traditions of French engineering institutions (Grandes Ecoles d'Ingénieurs), Centrale Nantes trains engineers, and masters and PhD students post-academia, in the latest scientific and technological developments and the best management practice. The major subject areas Centrale Nantes tackles are: industry, numerical, ocean and energy, health, management and corporate social responsibility, architecture, civil engineering, and the 21st-century city.
Website Université Gustave Eiffel
6 educational and research institutions with acknowledged expertise in the fields related to sustainable cities are combining their skills and know-how to create a new type of university of international standing: Université Gustave Eiffel. This new institution broughts together a university (UPEM), a research institute (IFSTTAR), a school of architecture (Éav&t) and three engineering schools (EIVP, ENSG and ESIEE Paris).
