2020 CURSUS+ call for projects

From October 7, 2019 to November 7, 2019


The Université de Lyon has issued a call for 2020 CURSUS+ projects, as part of CURSUS+ winning the call for “New university programs” projects.

The CURSUS+ project, led by the Université de Lyon, focuses on student success, and primarily involves the local universities (the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, the Université Lumière Lyon 2, the Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3 and the Université Jean Monnet Saint-Étienne), the ENS de Lyon, and the Conservatoire national des arts et métiers (Cnam). This collaborative project mainly focuses on a fundamental transformation of undergraduate university education, based on three pillars:

  • The first pillar: Personalize the curriculum of the four universities involved, by organizing the entire undergraduate License program into units;
  • The second pillar: Open up channels to facilitate the transition between general License programs and other types of undergraduate programs;
  • The third pillar: Professionalize the License diploma to support its integration in the employment market and to respond to the growing need for middle managers.

The 2020 CURSUS+ call for projects aims to develop new academic programs, as well as new teaching and training schemes for undergraduate students, in order to fulfill the needs identified for each of these three pillars (further details in the call for projects’ presentation document).

It is intended for professors, professor-researchers and educational engineers from partner institutions.

► Please send your application forms to: before November 7, 2019.
