Environments - Sustainable Development - RESPIRE Program

Theuniversité Savoie Mont Blanc has many assets to innovate, modernise and renovate its heritage on the way to the energy and ecological transition: a multidisciplinary university on a human scale, a strong anchorage and openness to its territory, political support and the support of economic actors in the field of building and the city ( Club des Entreprises and Fondation USMB ). The University's ambition is to transform its campuses into real experimentation and demonstration areas for the sustainable city of the future. The campuses should no longer be seen solely as places of work but also as places of life, leisure and multiple resources.

"Breathing: a project to transform our environments"

The University has therefore launched the RESPIRE[1] programme, which intends, beyond building renovation, to generate research and teaching projects. The challenge is to draw on the skills of the components (psychology, law, economics, sports, biology, engineering, etc.), laboratories and also students and staff.

The RESPIRE programme relies on the GECOs (working groups on eco-campuses), which are sources of innovation proposals, and coordinate initiatives and identify the means to put them into practice.
