Visit of the EcoCampus

Selected as part of the national programme 'Campus Operation', the eco-campus LyonTech-la Doua is a major restructuration and renovation project of the University of Lyon, with the rehabilitation of 140.000sq.m of premises. It aims to: i) strengthen the science and technology excellence of the campus for a sustainable society; ii) improve the student quality of life. Stormwater management plays a key role in the project.

A map (in French only - an English map will be available soon) will enable you to visit these devices and operations (you can also download the guide - French only).
