A city dedicated to research and innovation. The Eco-Valley is one of the largest Operations of National Interest (OIN) in France dedicated to sustainable development. With a surface area exceeding 10,000 hectares (25,000 acres) this zone, west of the city in the Plaine du Var (lower Var Valley), aims to become the reference point for sustainable development in Southern Europe and the Mediterranean Basin. This operation aspires to create a consistent harmonious balance between conserving natural heritage, opening up to the world and creating an employment hub (25,000 jobs in 15 years). It is already home to enterprises in this activity sector, a teaching and research cluster dedicated to sustainable development and ecology, and Union of European Football Association stadium. Big brands acquiring environmentally friendly infrastructures will join them soon along with housing facilities. Structures already present include: IMREDD (Mediterranean Institute of Risk, the Environment, and Sustainable Development), IBM, ERDF, Veolia Environnement and the European Business and Innovation Center which already has 30 start-ups. It will also see the extension of our tramway network with an additional line that will connect the Eco-Valley to the airport and the city center.
