This innovative full-immersion training centre was designed as a real factory, by and for manufacturers. Under real conditions, learners will acquire specific skills such as good manufacturing practices and an in-depth knowledge of processes, techniques and constraints related to cleanroom work. This new infrastructure is mainly intended for the health-related industries but also for the chemistry sector or the food industry. The project includes the construction of a hall of residence for students on work experience programmes. Strasbourg’s CROUS is indeed committed to providing these students with a housing solution that would meet their requirements. Project costs amount to EUR 38 million divided up between the EASE school (EUR 27,2 million) and the hall of residence ( EUR 10,4 million). They are partly funded by the Programme d’Investissements d’Avenir. The training centre is scheduled to open in the spring of 2016, while the hall of residence will welcome its first tenants at the beginning of the 2015-2016 academic year.
