The EnvIM international project 

During their stay in China and their first months in France, students work together on a project through France and China on an environmental topic, through an interdisciplinary approach based on innovation. This is a way to understand both the complexity of an environmental issue and its management in a different culture, as it enhances their vision of projects management and helps them better know this major player of the global economy.

This project is linked to Industrial needs. Students have to organize a Workshop in December in Beijing in Tsinghua, and an event in France at the end of January.

Examples of international projects and field trips:

2015: Bluetechs : unveiling new resources through marine innovations in China
