The IMREDD campus

A unique place of collaboration between the university, businesses and the territory

Conceived around an open technological platform dedicated to sustainable development and the Smart City, IMREDD (Méditerranean Institut for Risks, the Environment and Sustainable Development) is Université Côte d’Azur’s first Institut of Innovation and Partnerships. Its mission is to foster cooperation between students, researchers, governments and industry around a societal challenge: to build an intelligent and resilient territory capable of addressing environmental and social issues.

Local roots, global reach

IMREDD works closely with the Métropole Nice Côte d’Azur, the Alpes-Maritimes Department and the Région Sud Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur, as well as other local authorities, and also with local start-ups and global corporations, in a logic of cross-fertilisation to foster an effective connection between fundamental research and innovation.
