The funds allocated by the State and the European Union as part of the Recovery Plan are enabling the Cité internationale universitaire de Paris national foundation to accelerate the deployment of its energy optimisation strategy. Five campus buildings are concerned: the Fondation Avicenne, the Fondation Deutsch de la Meurthe, the Fondation Monaco, the Maison des étudiants arméniens and the Maison des Provinces de France.
An exceptional €100 billion recovery plan has been deployed by the government to accelerate the ecological, industrial and social transformation of the country. With financial support of €40 billion from the European Union, it is based on three axes: ecological transition, competitiveness and innovation and social cohesion. 25 million euros have been allocated to the national foundation Cité internationale universitaire de Paris for the thermal renovation of buildings.
The stimulus package is enabling work to be undertaken that will significantly improve the carbon footprint of some of our historic buildings, while improving the comfort of our residents. Without this support, we would not have been able to undertake these costly and complex works which are subject to specific heritage protection.
Formerly the Maison de l’Iran, closed since 2007 due to its dilapidation, this listed building is undergoing rehabilitation. Its opening is planned for September 2023.
A complete overhaul of the building’s roof and walls will optimise the residence’s ecological performance and the living comfort of the students who live there.
Energy performance works will be carried out from November 2022 to June 2024 within the Fondation de Monaco.
11 phases of work will follow one another until June 2024 to improve the energy performance of the spaces and 383 rooms of the Maison des Provinces de France.
Energy performance works will be carried out from November 2022 to June 2024 in the Maison des étudiants arméniens.
The Cité internationale is undergoing a historic development phase. Ten new houses will be built between now and its centenary in 2025 and all its services will be modernised as part of a Cité numérique plan. These houses will respect the specific characteristics of the Cité internationale, which reflect its values of peace, openness and solidarity.
The Cité internationale universitaire de Paris was born of the generosity of major donors. Conceived after the First World War, the Cité internationale universitaire de Paris brings together young talents from all over the world in the same place. By promoting shared life, exchanges and understanding of a rich and complex world, it contributes to raising awareness and giving meaning to the world. The Cité internationale’s commitments are based on 3 pillars: to encourage access to knowledge and mobility for the world’s youth, to promote solidarity and humanist values and to act for a sustainable world.
