• About Lyon



    A two thousand year city, situated at the junction of the Rhône and the Saône rivers. It is a city rich in history and particularly known for its Gallo-Roman origin with its former name Lugdunum. From the beginning of the industrial era, Lyon has attracted many companies representing various industrial sectors making its economic growth one of the most dynamic in the country.

    This expansion fostered the development of research and higher education institutions, including private and public research centers, universities and engineering schools. Université de Lyon is considered as the second academic center in France after Paris, with more than 150,000 students
    Currently, Lyon is the primary city of a community of about 2 million people. Lyon is easily accessible by all means of transportation from Europe, and from all continents. France welcomes international visitors from all over the world and September is a fine period for visiting Lyon and surroundings.
    Lyon is also known to be the cradle of veterinary education since the first veterinary school in the world welcomed, on February 13, 1762, its first students in the second city of the kingdom of France. In 2010, the National Veterinary School of Lyon became VetAgro Sup. Investment in veterinary and human medicine continued in Lyon with the establishment of many companies involved in this sector of activity, such as bioMérieux, a world leader in diagnostics.
