Reputation in Education

Higher education is an integral part of excellence. It provides the breeding ground for tomorrow’s top-level researchers and executives, and disseminates research and innovation results, including in the economic, social and cultural spheres. Training is therefore central to structuring the cluster policy of Bordeaux.

These eight clusters of excellence play a major and active role in the design and implementation of Masters or PhD courses, and also potentially in lifelong learning for employees from the business world and researchers from public and private sectors. They provide an opportunity to develop innovative practices, new educational approaches, new courses of study or modes of personal development that respond fully to the challenges of a changing world.

Like the IDEX Bordeaux development policy, the clusters aim to develop an innovative education project to coordinate and support initiatives around three objectives:

  • develop and promote innovative teaching projects in an international context, backed by scientific excellence;
  • create new training opportunities tailored to the needs of socio-economic partners and built on disciplinary, cultural and intellectual diversity, within in a reorganized University;
  • provide enhanced conditions for learning and life-long learning. Rely on strong socio-economic partnerships to develop a vocational and continuous training offering to meet the demands of a growing job market forced to adapt to accelerating technological and lifestyle change.
