A young and vibrant city despite being founded in the 10th Century, Montpellier has an average of 120 new startups each year. It has been awarded a "French Tech City" accreditation as it has a thriving startup ecosystem supported by its numerous universities, research centers in computer science, robotics and electronics, as well as advanced healthcare laboratories.
More than one third of its population are students that attend a university in the city: Montpellier 2 University, Paul Valéry University and Montpellier III, whilst the University of Montpellier founded in 1160, is one of the oldest universities in the world. Montpellier is also where Europe's first medical school was founded in the 12th Century.
A multi- cultural population has created a diverse and stylish metropolis with grand private mansions, sweeping boulevards, elegant buildings and shady backstreets, as well as stunning white-sand beaches. Lively and historical, it is the 8th largest city in France and the capital of the Languedoc-Roussillon region. The city's life began as a trading centre in the 12th Century, quickly becoming a cultural hot spot of diverse ethnicities and an industrial centre.
You will be able to jump on trams, visit art museums, meander around cobblestoned plazas, sip espresso and people watch at one of the many chic cafes or check out the local markets. This is where the old meets the modern in a fusion of IT excitement and baguettes stuffed with cheese.
