Specialist Masters Courses
Created by one of the founder members of the ARTEM Alliance, Mines Nancy, in partnership with the Nancy École nationale supérieure d’architecture, the ENSGSI and the Nancy Ecole nationale supérieure d’art et de design, this university Master’s Degree requiring two years of study focuses on design in industry and architecture.
The first year (Master 1) is divided into four blocks of study : Design and Project, Design and Materials, Design and Systems, and Design and Image. In year 2 (Master 2) there are four areas of specialization : Specialization in Product Design, including conception, products, procedures and materials, Specialization in Glass in Architectural Design, Specialization in Architectural Modelling and the Environment, and Specialization in Management of Innovation in Industrial Design.See more
This MSc course, launched in 2012, is the result of the partnership between the three ARTEM Alliance Schools. The combined strength of each School’s specialization provides students with a fresh approach to understanding the complexities of the luxury and design markets.
Although it was first conceived at ICN Business School, one component of the course is delivered by the Design option at the Nancy Ecole nationale supérieure d'art et de design, and supervised by the designer Jean-Baptiste Sibertin-Blanc.See more
The Extras of ARTEM
Artem Game Lab is a research and experimental development laboratory working in the area of games, especially video games. The focus is firmly on experimentation, production and research in a number of specialist areas: esthetics, scenario design, playability and gameplay, player experience, interfaces, transmedia, addictions, sociability, teaching and learning, and ‘serious games’.
The ARTEM Alliance has led to the development of one of the rare educational programs in video games in France. It combines two worlds, those of the arts and sciences, to the extent that it has now become a discipline in its own right, with its own fairs, conferences, scientific publications and its teaching and study programs.
For one semester, students from the ENSAD (École nationale supérieure d'art et de design de Nancy), and from Mines Nancy work together on creating video games. They will be joined by students from ICN at the start of the academic year 2016.
Students are divided into mixed groups to create the concepts and the scenarios for their games. The workshops last several days, and on a weekly basis, so the work is regular and intense! Students from Mines Nancy encode the games, whilst ENSAD students create the characters, develop their movements and design the sets where the characters play out their actions.
There is a presentation of the games before members of the public in June at L’Autre Canal. This enables the students to test their creations with real fans and consumers.
The three Schools in the ARTEM Alliance have also combined to set up a joint community project called ‘ARTEM - Ensemble vers l’avenir ‘ (ARTEM – facing the future together), part of the national network of 375 Cordée de la Réussite projects in France. This however is the only multidisciplinary project involving a School of Art and Design, an Engineering School and a School of Management, all working together with the High School classes preparing students for the graduate Schools.
- the Pathways project ‘ARTEM - Ensemble vers l’avenir’ involves 8 Secondary Schools and 6 High Schools in the Lorraine region of France
- more than 300 High School pupils and 450 Secondary School pupils benefit from the initiative
- it is the biggest Pathway project in Lorraine in terms of the number of participants.
The project uses skills and activities already in place in schools for pupils who do not have the advantage of living in an environment which is favorable to further and higher education study. In some instances these initiatives have been in place for a number of years. Students from the ARTEM Alliance improve and extend these initiatives and enhance the structure through new partnerships..
The ARTEM Pathway project ‘ARTEM - Ensemble vers l’avenir’ develops three types of activity:
- A joint system of tutorial guidance and activities intended for all the pupils in the Project: information about the project and about the opportunities for further study, with visits to the three ARTEM Schools, meetings with the students, etc., information about the different functions of an engineer, a business manager, director of a company (with visits to companies and meetings with professional practitioners), conferences, specialist workshops, and discussion groups (on current affairs, for example) ,
- Individual guidance tutorials to help the school pupils to overcome any methodological or organizational difficulties they may have, or any difficulties in learning and acquiring knowledge,
- Participation in cultural events and exhibitions, to widen the pupils’ horizons and raise their expectations: museums, theater, opera, artists’ workshops, experimental cinema, etc.
The Nancy ENSAD, ICN Business School and Mines Nancy decided, as part of the ARTEM Alliance, to create a space dedicated specifically to helping young graduates make the transition from School to the employment market. This area is called Villa Artem. It will provide help for students wishing to set up their own businesses or develop other projects in which the preponderent theme will be creation. In this way graduates and student-entrepreneurs who have an original and enterprising project which is creative and which reflects the spirit of ARTEM, will be able to benefit from a high level, professional environment where they can also find all the resources they need to succeed in their venture.
In preparation for the creation of Villa Artem which should be completed by 2019, the Nancy ENSAD wanted to set up immediately, along with ICN Business School and Mines Nancy, a new kind of incubator. This will be called Stand Up – Artem and will have the support of financial help from the French Ministry of Culture and Communication, and from the Regional Council for the north-east of France. The project will, over the next two years, make available, for selected graduates and students who have an enterprising project, the material conditions of the ARTEM eco-system for them to pursue their professional project or their enterprise start-up.. Stand up - Artem will support them by providing a structure of help, advice and finance during the first stages of their project.
The 2nd Organizational Creativity and Sustainability International Conference will be held in Nancy from 14 till 16 September 2017. Based on the inspiring outcomes of the first Artem OCC conference, which have been documented in a special issue of the Journal of Cleaner Production, we would like to continue the discussion on how sustainable development can be facilitated and fostered by the creativity of individuals, groups and organizations.
This conference seeks to rethink new paths related to how creativity can move people, organizations and societies towards sustainability in various fields. The objective of this international conference is to create a discursive space among academics, professionals and doctoral students in areas such as engineering, arts, sociology, education and management to tackle the relation between sustainable development and creativity in its different dimensions. The conference is organized in different tracks, each one offering a dedicated perspective on sustainable development and creativity. Each track is convened by an international group of experts in the field.

This is a research program which was created in 2013 and developed by the Nancy Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Art et de Design as part of the ARTEM project. It is an ‘off-campus’ post-Master program designed as part of a partnership between the Nancy School and the Shanghai Institute of Visual Art (SIVA), the Shanghai University and the Shanghai Rockbund Museum of Contemporary Art. The aim of the offshore School is to provide a reference program in creation and creativity in the context of globalization. It is open to post Master-level students and to artists, Faculty and researchers, from all the Schools of Art in France, who wish to pursue their studies in Shanghai, along with students from other cultures, and supervised by visiting artist-lecturers, both Chinese and other nationalities.See more

As well as being an alliance between three Graduate Schools, the ARTEM community also includes some forty company directors who are committed to this unique model of interdisciplinary teaching and its added value for students and graduates seeking internships or a first employment.
In a concern to become more involved than ever in the alliance, ARTEM Entreprises is now located on the ARTEM campus where it has its own purpose-built premises for promoting enterprise. Its proximity to ARTEM students and research Faculty means that relations between the Schools and companies are so much more closely developed. It also puts students and staff in direct contact with the new requirements of business and the economy.
For Olivier Crancée, President of ARTEM Entreprises and also CEO of the company France Lanord et Bichaton: "Multi-disciplinary training and cross-disciplinary teaching produce exactly the profile of ARTEM graduate that companies are looking for. And this applies to both large Groups and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises."
