Renewing the cooperation agreement with Fudan University in Shanghai

On The October 19, 2020


The Université de Lyon has renewed its cooperation agreement with the University of Fudan for a period of five years. Fudan University is ranked 100th in the Shanghai 2020 Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU – Shanghai Ranking) and is ranked the sixth best Chinese university in this same world-class ranking.

In August 2020, the Université de Lyon renewed its cooperation agreement with the prestigious Fudan University in Shanghai for a period of five years with a view to developing collaborative initiatives with high scientific potential, both in terms of research and education. This cooperation agreement was signed as part of the International Alliance*.

This agreement aims to promote the initiatives of the Université de Lyon’s member institutions to develop and implement the following forward-looking actions:

  • The development of collaborative research and training programs;
  • Staff exchange programs (professors, researchers, post-doctoral researchers and administrative staff);
  • Co-organizing joint conferences, workshops, summer schools, etc.;
  • Exchanging academic publications and scholarly information;
  • Exchange programs for foreign language teaching assistants;
  • Student mobility (for Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree and PhD students);
  • The international implementation of co-directed doctoral theses;
  • And finally, organizing any other type of collaboration that might be useful in achieving these objectives.

The Université de Lyon therefore encourages projects to be submitted with the University of Fudan as part of calls for projects with IDEXLYON funding.

* The International Alliance is network of strategic academic partners that the Université de Lyon is developing on behalf of its members as part of its international policy. For more information, please visit the International Alliance web page.
