Following the â€œYear of Sports from School to Universityâ€ and supporting the Paris 2024 bid, the Ministry of National Education declared, in its August 2016 circular, the 2016-2017 School and University year the â€œYear of Olympism from School to Universityâ€. The same year, an inter-ministerial program of 24 measures was unveiled on 22 March 2017 at the Council of Ministers. The aim was to ensure, six months before the designation of the 2024 host city, full State support for Parisâ€™ bid for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The first measure concerned the creation of a â€œGeneration 2024â€ label for Schools and Universities. The University of Franche-ComtÃ© was one of the first accredited universities in France.
