For research excellence

The partnership between the research teams at the Université de Lyon (UdL) and Inra will enable both institutions to develop high-caliber research, particularly through their joint involvement in the site's major strategic projects, notably through IDEXLYON, with a major focus on the issue of "Biology and Health".

To do this, the UdL and Inra wish to collaborate to meet the following objectives:

  • Develop high-caliber research and attract French and international talent;
  • Contribute to the site's training schemes;
  • Develop the international visibility of higher education and research for the Lyon site;
  • Develop a European and international outreach policy;
  • Contribute to the economic development of the region by strengthening ties between higher education, research and the economic sector;
  • Utilize the results of jointly led research activities;
  • Develop scientific and technical culture across the Lyon Saint-Étienne site.
