The “University of Lille 2022” is the shared ambition of several key players in higher education, research and innovation in the territory who are joining forces to create a new establishment together:
an excellent and inclusive university, positioning itself among the most recognized European universities over the next 10 years,
a major player in the ongoing renewal of its territory, capable of responding, through the tools of knowledge and knowledge, to the challenges of global transitions – social, economic and ecological.
This establishment will be born on January 1, 2022 and will take the name “University of Lille” because of the commitment of the partners to the university operations and the desire for a strong territorial anchoring. It will take advantage of the framework opened by the ordinance of 12 December 2018 relating to the experimentation of new types of groupings in the field of higher education.
The financial resources obtained through I-SITE have made it possible since 2018 to move in this direction by increasing investments in the service of research, education, international influence and partnerships of our institutions. It is this dynamic that the “University of Lille 2022” project will extend in the years to come. Together to amplify our capacity for action and open up new development perspectives, for our students, staff and our territory.
