A collective dynamic for the Energy and Ecological Transition team

For this day, the Energy and Ecological Transition (TEE) team from the Université de Lyon will be at the Maison du Projet to present its TEE strategy, as well as the eco-friendly action campaign, jointly developed by all the site's member institutions.

The Université de Lyon and its member institutions have made a collective commitment to completing the successful energy and ecological transition of the university campuses in Lyon Saint-Étienne and are rallying together to reduce its environmental impact.

The renovation and rehabilitation of the LyonTech-la Doua campus, which began in 2015, will eventually involve 14,000 m2 of the site's buildings and include 24,800 m2 of construction work. This construction work is coupled with efforts to raise user awareness, particularly through Sustainable Development Student Week.
