The CMQ BioEco Academy becomes a Campus of Excellence

Published on 09 April 2021

On Thursday 18 March, Jean-Michel BLANQUER, Minister of National Education, Youth and Sports, Bruno LE MAIRE, Minister of the Economy, Finance and Recovery, Élisabeth BORNE, Minister of Labour, Employment and Economic Inclusion, Frédérique VIDAL, Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, and Alain GRISET, Deputy Minister responsible for Small and Medium-sized Companies, announced the qualification of the Campus des Métiers et des Qualifications BioEco Academy led by URCA as a campus of excellence.

This Campus of Excellence label recognises our CMQ's ability to bring together educational and economic players, and forge partnerships with leading research teams to provide an effective response to training challenges related to the bioeconomy.

As a reminder, the BioEco Academy project was a winner of the Investments for the Future Programme (PIA).

The BioEco Academy project should make it possible in the medium term to develop emerging training courses and better support audiences in the bioeconomy sector, to promote the latter at regional level and to position itself as a benchmark at European level. For this, it relies in particular on a collaborative approach between training and research establishments (ranging from sixth form level to 8 years+ at university), in partnership with local authorities, the Grand Est academic region and stakeholders in the socio-economic fabric.

The goal of the BioEco Academy is to create and build a real benchmark campus focused on the bioeconomy, revolving around 3 major focuses: to promote and highlight the bioeconomy sector and industrial biotechnologies in order to promote active orientation of learners; develop the ambition of learners and encourage an increase in the level of qualification; and improve professional integration.
