European Doctoral College Lille Nord-Pas De Calais

The European Doctoral College Université Lille Nord de France is a hub for doctoral researchers and contributes to the Lisbon strategy to make Europe 'the most competitive and knowledge-based economy in the world and a reference for high quality and excellence in education'. The doctoral college groups together 6 doctoral schools supported by research laboratories in Lille-Kortrijk Eurodistrict and related universities in the Euroregion including Belgium and French Nord - Pas de Calais. It aims to strengthen academic and research cooperation among the universities in the Euroregion.

It is often stated that the international attraction of a region is based on a sustainable combination of first-class university institutes and cosely knit links between education, research and society. The purpose of the doctoral college is to contribute and maintain the sustainability of such a combination in the Lille-Nord de France region, as this European region includes over a hundred thousand university students and more than ten thousand researchers. Lille-Nord de France claims as one of the few European hub regions recognised for their academic excellence and innovation. Research domains are supported by several hundred Master/research curricula from the University of Lille-Nord de France and partners institutes, as the first step towards doctoral studies within the doctoral college.

In addition to fundamental research, applied research is a key aspect of the doctoral college, supporting the emergence of innovation. The doctoral college is embedded in several world-class competitiveness clusters located in the Nord de France region with strong links to industry applications. Incubators for start-up companies (such as Eurasanté and MITI-incubation) are located on the campus sites in the Lille area.

Most researchers at the doctoral college are partially funded through grants from the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) or from the French Agence nationale pour la Recherche (ANR). Applied research is also funded through university-industry joint programmes (CIFRE).

Famous quotes containing the words european and/or college:

    It has become necessary to call the attention of European governments to a fact which is apparently so insignificant that the governments seem not to notice it. The fact is this: an entire people is being annihilated. Where? In Europe. Are there witnesses? One witness, the entire world. Do the governments see it? No.
    Victor Hugo (1802–1885)

    In looking back over the college careers of those who for various reasons have been prominent in undergraduate life ... one cannot help noticing that these men have nearly always shown from the start an interest in the lives of their fellow students. A large acquaintance means that many persons are dependent on a man and conversely that he himself is dependent on many. Success necessarily means larger responsibilities, and responsibilities mean many friends.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)
