AgroTechParis is one of France’s most prestigious higher-education institutions and a leader in life sciences and agronomy. WSP has been supporting the next phase of its evolution, as it relocates to a brand-new 65,000m2 campus in the world-leading cluster of Paris-Saclay.
Paris-Saclay is a government-designated special planning district established in the southern suburbs of Paris in 2013. The ambition is to create an innovation hub to rival Cambridge, Massachusetts or Silicon Valley, bringing together six of France’s “grandes écoles” alongside public and private research institutes, commercial partners and start-ups. By 2027, it is expected to host 20,000 academics, more than 25,000 students and 20,000 employees.
