Friday February 24th, Université de Lyon has been rewarded with the IDEX label. It is a great success for us.
IDEX (excellence initiatives) is a funding programme launched by the state in 2010. It aims at promoting French excellence and competitiveness in higher education and research by providing funds to fundamental research activities, industrial innovation, education, technology transfers, etc.
Our IDEX project aims at reinforcing a policy of excellence in research and training so as to make the area one of the most recognided academic centers in Europe and the world. It will constitute a new model of integration between schools and universities within an integrated university.
