Station A, a space for innovation and technology, open to the world

The Artem Alliance has allowed the school to develop many interdisciplinary activities throughout the duration of students’ education, in conjunction with the Ecole nationale supérieure d’art et de design de Nancy and Mines Nancy. ICN is now extending its development strategy with a campus in Paris and Berlin. In addition, the school will remain faithful to its choices in terms of learning design, with particular focus on openness, innovation and creativity for students and academic staff alike. The ICN Station A(rt, technology & management), is a physical 600 m² space, which is an extension of the Artem campus, and will be inaugurated in February 2021. It will be dedicated to collective intelligence, open to students, business and enterprise and ICN partners alike, and will contribute to the development of our school values. Our aim has been the creation of spaces designed to be open and flexible, to encourage exchange between very broad disciplinary fields, to enable experimentation, exploration and cooperation in approaching complex problems. Stimulating the creativity of students and professionals alike, in this way, will encourage them to think and act differently.

Station A will become the ICN Moving Lab, encouraging learning through experience, agility and an ability to grasp complexity. A living meeting ground for students, lecturers and researchers, financial partners and local economic and government bodies to be able to imagine the unimaginable.

The school puts forward ideas, developed with artists, designers, film or stage directors, engineers and more. This fosters real-life situations enabling responses to social issues and/ or business concerns. Learning through discovery and coming up against real scenarios constitutes one of the most powerful ideas in learning theory and design.

Station A, on Place de Padoue in Nancy, is to be reproduced on each of the school campuses. This will enable students to benefit from the same student experience in Nancy, Paris and Berlin.
