Recognised as the leading French Graduate School in Agronomy, Environment, Life science and Food technology, AgroParisTech has a tradition of more than 150 years1.

The Nancy Centre of AgroParisTech-ENGREF
Within AgroParisTech, ENGREF is in charge of the education in forestry at the master and doctoral levels. Forestry training and research mainly take place at the Nancy centre, which has close links with the ENGREF campuses of Montpellier in southern France and Kourou in French Guyana. The Nancy centre, which was founded in 1825, is specialised in forestry, management of territories with high environmental value, and wood products.
The AgroParisTech-ENGREF Nancy Centre offers students a variety of up-to-date facilities; for example, it has the largest library in forestry in France, a well-equipped wood laboratory and advanced hardware and software equipment in GPS and GIS. Students can also get access to the large research facilities at the INRA centre, which is only 15 km away from Nancy.
AgroParisTech-ENGREF owns three forests where practical training is given in the field. In Nancy, AgroParisTech ENGREF is at the hub of scientific relations with, for example: 3 local universities, the Epinal engineer school in wood technology, public and private forest institutions, the EFI Observatory for Regional Forests OEF, universities and forest research centres in Freiburg (Germany) and Zürich (Switzerland).
The city of Nancy is 90 minutes away from Paris by high speed train. The AgroParisTech-ENGREF Centre is located in the centre of Nancy close to the railway station and a tram line. Furthermore, in Nancy more than 40 000 students organise a lot of cultural and sports events and the student associations are very active and come in numbers.
