No comments

The Region is overseeing the project management of the construction of the university building “Health Technical Platform” for the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Picardie Jules Verne (UPJV) on the Thill Campus in Amiens (80). The State has entrusted the project management to the Region through a convention signed in August 2018.

This is another step towards making Hauts-de-France a region at the forefront of health. A facility, construction of which began in April 2022 and will be completed in 2024, will host students and researchers in Amiens (80) on the site of the University of Picardie Jules Verne (UPJV), advancing excellence in the medical field in the region.

A high-quality facility

It is a major project for education and research that will contribute to the region’s influence and establish it as a center of excellence in medical training and research. This health campus will accommodate 6,151 students in health and care fields, including paramedical schools, the Institute of Health Engineering (2IS) at UPJV, medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy. 375 teaching and non-teaching staff will perform their duties there.

This high-quality facility will improve the conditions for students and researchers by providing modern and newly equipped spaces and will gain attractiveness due to its proximity to the CHU of Amiens south. It will enhance the attractiveness of the Hauts-de-France region in the field of health and will showcase its higher education institutions in the field of active pedagogy and health simulation dedicated to healthcare professionals and students.

Additionally, the building has been designed with virtuous objectives regarding environmental respect and energy consumption.

A budget of 26 million euros funded by Europe, the State, and the Region

The Region has invested 9,400,000 € in this project, which will be completed in the second quarter of 2024. While the national territory is facing a shortage of doctors and professionals in the paramedical field, the Region is making every effort, in partnership with the State through the State-Region Planning Contract (CPER), and Europe, to train the doctors of tomorrow and strive for excellence in research.

At each stage of the operation (programming, design studies, and construction), close consultation has been established with the university’s services to ensure that the building meets the needs of future users (health students, teacher-researchers, and healthcare practitioners).

Key figures: Area: 5,569m²; The new building will consist of 7 structurally linked major functional entities: the General Reception Hub, the Technical Teaching Hub: a set of 15 practical workrooms with about thirty seats and annexes spread over 4 levels, the Anatomy Hub, the BIOPI Research Hub (Plant Biology and Innovation Laboratory), the AGIR Research Hub (Infectious Agents, Resistance & Chemotherapy Laboratory), the Logistics Hub, and the Annexes Hub, a small autonomous and isolated unit for storing hazardous products and waste; 6,151 students in health and care fields: 525 students in paramedical school; 675 students at the Institute of Health Engineering (2IS) at UPJV; 4,049 students in medicine; 20 students in dentistry; 882 students in pharmacy.”
