The University of Lille, a multidisciplinary university of excellence at the heart of Northern Europe, boasts an outstanding cultural and scientific heritage that is etched into the Hauts-de-France Region’s history.
In close collaboration with its partners and networks, the University of Lille designs and implements innovative programmes in research, training and knowledge transfer, always with the aim of responding to the major challenges of our society. By merging Lille's three universities, it has empowered itself to achieve its ambition of accessing major funding programmes (I-SITE University of Lille Nord-Europe, opération campus, etc.).
The University of Lille’s excellence in research is recognised through the projects of the investissements d’avenir programme (PIA). These projects are allocated significant resources in the long term in order to build an integrated policy of research, training and value creation.Laboratories of excellence
