Université de Lille

The University of Lille, a multidisciplinary university of excellence at the heart of Northern Europe, boasts an outstanding cultural and scientific heritage that is etched into the Hauts-de-France Region’s history.
With its 72,000 students (including 9,502 international students), 6,700 employees, 66 research units and a range of courses covering all subject areas, the University of Lille has established itself as a key player in the region for training, research and innovation, and commitment to social issues.

Established in 2010, the Collège Doctoral Lille Nord de France was integrated into the University of Lille in 2020. It is a place for consultation and coordination of doctoral schools. Its main objectives are to :

● Strengthen the interdisciplinarity and internationalisation of doctoral training, in addition to the actions of the doctoral units and schools.
● To prepare doctoral students for their career pursuits, in particular towards the non-academic economic world, by working to create bridges between the academic world and other socio-economic actors.
● To promote the doctorate and PhDs in civil society, through promotional actions and the setting up of events with the socio-economic world such as Startdoc, the PhD Welcome, the Doc challenge, the competition "my thesis in 180 seconds" and the "doctoriales"

The doctoral college thus completes the action of the 6 doctoral schools which bring together more than 2300 doctoral students.
