I-SITE project

Labeled I-SITE in February 2017 as part of the second wave of the French “Investissements d'Avenir” Program, the Université Lille Nord-Europe (ULNE) project brings together 14 founding members* with the aim of transforming the landscape of research and training in the French region of “Hauts-de-France”, by sustaining and expanding its excellence. Its goal is the creation of a major international university, ranked among the top 50 in Europe before 10 years: the Université Lille Nord-Europe (ULNE).

Health, Planet and Digital World: the project is structured around three interconnected themes covering a broad disciplinary spectrum. Internationalization and valorization are also at the heart of its priorities.
