Who we are

The Target University project brings together 4 institutions that are committed, on the basis of a shared vision, to monitoring the defining works of this experimental institution and to participating in the work groups.

Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1

As a science, technology, health and sport university, the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 offers its 46,000 students high-quality training programs, and has provided excellent research within its 65 laboratories for nearly 50 years. Every day, its 5,000 staff members commit to developing interdisciplinary research, focused on the major societal issues of our time, as well as a demanding training program, in relation with the constraints of the field, in order to guarantee student success. At the heart of its 3 campuses and 11 sites, Lyon 1 is working towards constructing an inclusive university that is committed to providing support, creation and sharing with all those that bring it to life.

Within its six faculties and institutes, it has more than 29,000 students, 5,000 of which are international students. With 7 doctoral schools and 19 research units, it develops interdisciplinary research in connection with the major societal issues. Thanks to its links with the socio-economic background and specific support mechanisms, the Université Jean Moulin promotes the success of its students and their employability. On its campuses and outside their walls, it offers many activities that contribute to their fulfillment: arts and culture, sport and charity, and entrepreneurial work.
