Université de Lyon

Lyon, France
The Université de Lyon federates and promotes the remarkable scientific research potential of the Lyon Saint-Etienne site.



Created in 21 March 2007, the Université de Lyon in the form of a "public scientific cooperation organization" (EPCS).


This "Research and Higher Education Cluster" (PRES) then underwent a further evolution with the Act of 22 July 2014 relative to Higher Education and Research, by becoming a "Community of Universities and Higher-Education Establishments" (COMUE).


The hive of research activity features in particular four advanced fields with major social and economic impacts for which the university enjoys a strong international reputation thanks to the site's laboratories and the Labex (Laboratories of Excellence) and Equipex (Equipment of Excellence) labelled as part of the "Investissements d'Avenir" program lauched by the French Governement.
