An 11,000 m2 campus
The WHO Academy will be located in the Gerland district in the south of Lyon and will occupy an area of 10,600 m², including a seven-story main building, specially built for the occasion. It is scheduled to open in 2023.
The Lyon campus will also feature high-tech learning facilities, a world-class health emergency simulation center, and collaborative spaces for co-design, research and innovation.
Eventually, approximately 200 WHO staff should be on site.
This campus will offer dozens of training modules in digital format for healthcare professionals in the 194 member states of the international organization.
The goal is to reach 10 million users by the end of 2023, including 16,000 face-to-face courses per year at the Lyon site. Validated and accredited by recognized organizations, these training courses will be delivered in the six official languages of the United Nations.
