2016 Nancy, France
NANCY is currently building a very exemplary "knowledge city" campus called Artem and gathering a business school, Art school, an engineering and technology school, and several basic science research labs, all of them being firt range in their discipline. This campus is located in the city center so that it actually re-creates the city rather than being a separate urban area. Nancy also benefits from the new high speed train connection to major european cities (Paris, Strasbourg, Luxembourg, Basel, etc.). The city will also benefit from a solid interaction with the new Centre Pompidou opening soon in Metz, thus engaging a very strong regional development dynamic.
