About us

Espace Ulys, the EURAXESS center of the Université de Lyon academic community (ComUE), is the support center for international scientists arriving at the Lyon-Saint-Etienne campus.


Awarded Euraxess Center status in 2005, Espace Ulys took shape in 2014, with the support of the Métropole de Lyon to facilitate the mobility of international scientists, in the same way as the Aderly agency does for expats/international entrepreneurs.
Espace Ulys is a shared service for the entire Lyon Saint-Etienne campus, contributing to the region’s reputation and attractiveness in conjunction with ONLYLYON.
