Université Laval (Québec) and the Université Côte d'Azur launch a joint website for their collaboration

A special partnership between Université Laval and the Université Côte d'Azur has been in place since 2015, and is based on a privileged and fruitful collaboration involving faculty, researchers and students on both sides of the Atlantic. To present this partnership, a joint website was created, the official launch of which was announced on Friday November 9, 2018, at the closing of the Sophia Summit dedicated to artificial intelligence, during which a delegation from Laval University was invited as a guest of honour.

In 2015, a delegation from the Université Côte d'Azur visited members of Université Laval in Quebec City, Canada, setting the stage for a collaboration that everyone hoped would be fruitful. A few months later, a privileged partnership between educational and research institutions was born. Since then, professors and people involved in the development and monitoring of joint projects have been working every day to perpetuate the framework agreement established in 2017 between the two universities.

A unique and innovative web platform
On the occasion of the first Sophia Summit dedicated to artificial intelligence, held from November 7 to 9 in Sophia Antipolis (France), the web platform shared by the two universities was presented at the closing session by Jean-Marc Gambaudo, President of the Université Côte d'Azur and Rénald Bergeron, Vice-Rector for External Affairs of Université Laval.
It presents the inspiring stories of teachers, on both sides of the Atlantic, who together are making a difference in addressing increasingly complex social issues. This original platform aims to intensify research collaborations by:
- supporting the mobility of students from both institutions;
- supporting the mobility of researchers and faculty between the two institutions;
- intensifying public-private partnerships in the respective ecosystems as part of innovation support programs.

More than a simple platform, this site is intended to be a global showcase illustrating the exceptional ambition of the two universities to together develop efficient collaborations in education, research and innovation to advance science together and participate in development. It will be enriched with new stories as the partnership progresses.
