Languedoc-Roussillon Universities (COMUE-LR)[x_text]
[icon type= »caret-right »] The 26 COMUE in France (Communauté d’universités et établissements – Community of Universities and Establishments) mainly intend to coordinate training offers and research strategies of public higher education establishments on a given territory.
[icon type= »caret-right »] The Languedoc-Roussillon COMUE enables to gather higher education and research establishments of the region (universities, faculties, large establishments, schools, institutes, general hospitals…). It is essentially a way of promoting competency in terms of research and training in the international scientific competition. Gathering linked establishments stimulates coordination of actions and mutuality of means in many shared projects.[/x_text] [x_text]
