The NAUTILUS is an open, collaborative workplace at the heart of the manufacturing campus to the southwest of Nantes Métropole, close to Nantes Altantique airport, the Airbus Atlantic Nantes plant, the Composites & Ocean Technocampus, DAHER and the Jules Verne Manufacturing Academy.


The new building encourages collaborative work between IRT teams and with partners on R&D projects, while providing a state-of-the-art industrial environment. Modern and bathed in light, the Nautilus is intelligently designed, with numerous areas for meetings and exchanges.


“With the Nautilus building, the IRT Jules Verne has an additional asset with which to pursue high-level research partnerships with an industrial focus, which, I have no doubt and wish every success, will lead to the emergence of major innovations and large-scale technological projects with a strong economic, social and environmental impact, in line with the objectives of France 2030.
