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:

    Of course, in the reality of history, the Machiavellian view which glorifies the principle of violence has been able to dominate. Not the compromising conciliatory politics of humaneness, not the Erasmian, but rather the politics of vested power which firmly exploits every opportunity, politics in the sense of the “Principe,” has determined the development of European history ever since.
    Stefan Zweig (18811942)

    When a girl of today leaves school or college and looks about her for material upon which to exercise her trained intelligence, there are a hundred things that force themselves upon her attention as more vital and necessary than mastering the housewife.
