Transdisciplinarity


While supporting the research excellence at the heart of all disciplines, the Université Côte d'Azur actively promotes transdisciplinarity. Only the cross-talk between several disciplines can make it possible to understand the complex world around us. Transdisciplinarity arises through a process of integration and transcending the specific perspectives of each discipline - each bringing its specific approach and analytical tools.

This is why the Université Côte has various tools to support this new scientific approach.

* Five academies have been established as part of the UCAJEDI program, each composed of laboratories and teams of excellence, which build new interactions between researchers from different disciplines in the following five areas:

These Academies of Excellence are flexible and responsive structures that fuel the creativity and renewal of research at the Université Côte d'Azur. Annual funding allows the academies to support, according to their own terms, the initiatives developed within them.

The mission of the Academies is to:

- create sites for intellectual exchange enabling the emergence of new concepts,
- support innovative, original and quality projects so that they can establish themselves in the landscape of national and international research.

* The UCAJEDI program has also made it possible to establish 8 transdisciplinary core programs, focussing on several complementary projects and transversal activities: workshops, training programs, thematic schools, etc.

These core programs aim to develop transdisciplinary fields of research that have been identified as strong themes for the Université Côte d'Azur:
