A strategic location with international exposure

IPVF will settle in 2017 in the heart of Paris-Saclay Campus, located about 20 kilometers south of Paris in an 8,000 m2 building, half of which will be occupied by laboratories. A place for knowledge, teaching and innovation, the Campus aims to become a multidisciplinary scientific and technological center that compares with the best campuses in the world.

By 2020, the Campus will account for 15 to 20% of French research under various themes, with 12,200 researchers and teachers, 6,800 Ph. D. students and over 31,000 undergraduate students.
