Bouygues Matching-Up Programme


The Bouygues Group runs an annual initiative called “Matching up”, an international co-innovation programme in order to identify and develop sustainable partnerships.  This year, the focus is around Campus Design.

Campuses are being transformed by the digital revolution, the push for sustainable development, increased numbers of students, globalisation, evolving economic and governance models, higher demands for lucrative degrees and more competitive labour forces. These forces are also changing the approaches to education and the students themselves.

No aspect of campus life is unaffected. The geography and everyday experience of education, ways of teaching and learning, students’ position, and the structure of research are shifting in line with four main trends shaping the campus of tomorrow: connectivity, urban identity, socioeconomic awareness, and social responsibility. Campuses must rise to these challenges and find their footing in a context of stiffer international competition between higher education institutions.

Bouygues Construction wanted to combine its thinking and enrich its proposals by developing partnerships with innovation players. Objective: Co-create the campus of tomorrow.
