French Excellence Initiative

Excellence Initiative

The University of Strasbourg was one of seven French universities selected for the “Excellence Initiative” program by an international jury in 2012. The aim is to strengthen leading French universities in the world-wide competition.

The University of Strasbourg, with its partners from CNRS and INSERM, was also awarded, in the “Cluster of Excellence” program, with 12 projects selected. A Cluster of Excellence is typically carried out by a well-defined advanced project which is funded for up to 10 years, and is composed of a number of leading research teams.
