The Université de Lyon welcomed a delegation of students from the Tongji University’s “Tongji’s Engineers of Excellence in France and French-speaking countries” (TEEF) program.

During the course of 2019, the Université de Lyon reinforced its relationship with the Tongji University, which is one of its long-standing partners in the International Alliance. It has been a productive year, with several exploratory missions involving discussions between Lyon and Shanghai, focusing mainly on innovation and entrepreneurship.

Following on from this year of successful collaborations, the Université de Lyon (UdL) welcomed a group of 23 students and four mentors from Tongji as part of the Tongji Engineering Excellence Program (TEEF), from November 27 to 29, 2019. Participants had the opportunity to take part in a special program including visits and discussions with the UdL’s member engineering institutions (École Centrale de Lyon, INSA Lyon and ENTPE), the UdL’s Entrepreneurship Center and the NIFC.

The “Tongji’s Engineers of Excellence in France and French-speaking countries” (TEEF) program is an international exchange program that combines resources from several Tongji University institutions and departments. The program, which was established in 2015, takes place once a year and is structured around a specific theme. Over the years, it has become one of the major annual cooperative events between the Tongji University and the Université de Lyon.
