LYON is described by the The Economist (30 Sep 2017) as ‘a thriving, cosmopolitan regional city perched at the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône. It enjoys fast trains and slow food, and got a bike-sharing scheme long before Paris or London. The city retains a heavy industrial base, but has built new strengths in robotics, life sciences and clean tech.’
