Fourth gathering for universities, the Army and companies

On The April 4, 2019

The fourth gathering for universities, the Army and companies (Rencontres université défense entreprises - RUDE) was held on Thursday, April 4, 2019, at the Rockefeller campus of the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1. The event introduced students and university staff to the Army and its ties with the university.

The day’s focus was on raising awareness of land mines and mine action, with three workshops:

  • “First Aid, 21st-century risks” workshop;
  • “Tourniquets, combat rescue serious games, emergency ultrasound” workshop;
  • “Artificial intelligence and Big Data: how to find hidden information”, lecture given by Yves Genty-Baudry.

The students learned about military medical equipment and know-how through hands-on demonstrations, workshops and gatherings with military specialists and partner companies in the CIER building of the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1.

The National Collective of Defense and Safety Advisors (Collégiale des Référents Défense Sécurité - RDS) of the Université de Lyon was founded in 2010. It aims to organize events and courses for students and university teaching, administrative and technical staff in order to increase knowledge about the army within the university, in three main areas:
  • The idea of serving the nation;
  • The largest lifelong learning organization;
  • Presentation of potential career options for students (active service and army reserve).
