After a hearing before an international jury on February 21st, the project “Montpellier University of Excellence” (MUSE) was awarded the label “Initiatives – Science – Innovation – Territoires – Economie” (I-SITE) established within the French program “Investissements d’Avenir”.

The project involves the University of Montpellier, ten research institutions (BRGM, CEA, Cirad, CNRS, Ifremer, INRA, Inria, Inserm, IRD, Irstea), four schools (Architecture Montpellier, Chimie Montpellier, Mines d’Alès, SupAgro), three health institutions (CHU Montpellier, CHU Nîmes, Institut du Cancer de Montpellier), and one international organisation (CIHEAM-IAMM).

This project will accelerate the future development of the whole area and promote its visibility on the national and international higher education and research scenes.
