BRIO programm

The BRIO programme: Bond pour la Réussite par l’Initiative et l’Ouverture (Leap for Success through Initiative and Openness)

BRIO is the joint social openness and equal opportunities programme delivered by four Grandes Ecoles in Nantes. Launched in 2006 by Audencia and Centrale Nantes, the programme was awarded the “Cordée de la réussite” label, by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research in 2008.

The aim of the project is to give secondary school students from disadvantaged neighbourhoods and/or low-income families the opportunity to pursue ambitious, long-term studies.

How do we accomplish this? Students from our partner schools tutor the secondary school students and hold workshops (cultural openness, language classes, drama lessons, etc.).
