Lyon and Shanghai signed a university partnership agreement in November 2013.


Greater Lyon, the University of Lyon and IMU Labex (a laboratory of excellence focusing on intelligence in the urban environment) welcomed the President of the prestigious University of Tongii (Shanghai, China) to the Skyroom of the Oxygène Tower for the signing of IMU's first international partnership agreement.

This agreement follows the one signed between the University of Lyon and the University of Tongii in July 2013, in the context of the visit to China of a delegation from Greater Lyon.

Collaboration between the two universities will focus on building Franco-Chinese IMU-IUCC teams to work on:

  • different urban topics,
  • setting up exchanges between professors and researchers,
  • organizing joint participation in international scientific events,
  • actively participating in a search for funds at both national and international levels to support research programs.
