A study program managed by a consortium of six Breton higher education institutions

This study program is managed by the “Wasaa” consortium (Western Alliance for Scientific Actions with Australia), which comprises 6 Breton higher education institutions: ENSTA Bretagne, ENIB, Université Bretagne Occidentale, École Navale, IMT Atlantique and Université Bretagne Sud.

This cooperation goes hand-in-hand with the collaboration between Brittany and South Australia in the field of defense and is based on the intergovernmental agreement signed in Adelaide on December 20, 2016, by Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, and French Minister of Defense, Jean-Yves Le Drian.

The Wasaa Academy winter school has the financial support of the French Embassy in Australia and was selected for the “Creative France Australia short program”.

The program is an opportunity to strengthen the ties between Brittany and South Australia in the field of higher education.
