AUVERGNE-RHôNE-ALPES (France)

Located in France’s South East, and flanked by Switzerland and Italy, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes packs a powerful punch with a versatile mix of vibrant cities and awe-inspiring landscapes. Bang in the middle of the region is Lyon. This cultural hub of the South, rivalled only by Paris, entertains its residents yearlong with concerts, plays and festivals. It’s also France’s capital for new business creation and research and study of the sciences and technology.

The beautiful city of Grénoble sits at the foot of the Alps and is ideal for ski-mad technies and students who like to hit the slopes after a hard week’s work. The region’s weather can be temperamental; when hot it’s humid, and winters are generally quite cold.
