About Nantes Université :
Nantes Université is a public higher education and research institution that proposes a university model that is unique in France, bringing together a university, a university hospital (Nantes University Hospital), a technological research institute (IRT Jules Verne), a national research organisation (Inserm) and the grandes écoles (Centrale Nantes, Nantes Saint-Nazaire School of Fine Arts, Nantes School of Architecture).
These partners are working together to develop the areas of excellence in Nantes research, in particular to design and build the health and industry of the future. They offer students new training opportunities by opening up ways of thinking, cultures and practices.
Nantes Université is a sustainable institution, committed to and involved in the development of society. It has a global and original policy in favour of open science, open education and open innovation.
