A pioneering project which is unique in Europe
The ARTEM campus, an alliance between Nancy's École Nationale Supérieure d’Art, École Nationale Supérieure des Mines and the ICN Business School, is gradually taking up residence on the site of the former Molitor barracks, a 15-minute tram ride from Place Stanislas and a stone's throw from the Sarupt district where many of the architectural wonders bequeathed by the Ecole de Nancy can be found.
The three schools share this campus with Institut Jean Lamour, the international material science research centre. Consequently, art, technology and management are brought together under one roof to create a new synergy; a space where minds can come together to serve new engineering, creative and management vocations.
This pioneering project is unique in Europe and has created the biggest university site in France (excluding Ile de France). On completion it will bring together 5,000 students, teachers, researchers and administrative staff. It is the flagship of Lorraine University, a fusion of the region's major universities and one of twelve French university centres of excellence.
A Campus of Excellence brings together Grandes Ecoles (leading universities) across 85,000m2 The École Nationale Supérieure d’Art et de Design de Nancy, ICN Business School and Mines Nancy: 3,500 students, 300 teachers and researchers, 150 technical and administrative staff, more than 25 Artem workshops representing 3,000 teaching hours per year, 650 future engineers, designers and managers participating every Friday in Artem workshops, 40 companies under the Artem Entreprises umbrella, 5,000: the total number of students who have participated in Artem workshops since they were first established.
