The « Campus Sciences et Santé » CDT

Dedicated to life sciences and healthcare, the Villejuif-Evry cluster includes a CDT project to create a Sciences and Healthcare campus (“Campus Sciences et Santé”). This CDT will benefit from the presence of a large medicine university and specialized firms (35,000 students and 8,000 researchers)

Scope

The CDT project covers eight towns South of Paris—seven in the Val-de-Bièvre urban community (Arcueil, Cachan, Fresnes, Gentilly, l’Haÿ-les-Roses, le Kremlin Bicêtre and Villejuif) in addition to the town of Bagneux. Collectively, they account for close to 240,000 residents and 90,000 jobs.

Milestones

The framework agreement between the French state and the mayors of the eight towns was signed in February 2012, and the CDT project was validated in November 2012. Following a public consultation in May 2013, the CDT was permanently adopted in October 2013.
