Jeanick Brisswalter
Jeanick Brisswalter
Université Côte d’Azur, known as an experimental institution in France, aims to become an integrated university, intensive in research, internationally recognized, participating in the dynamics of growth of its territory.

Thanks to the IDEX obtained in January 2016, Université Côte d’Azur is positioned among the top 10 French universities. My mandate as president places me in the momentum driven by the UCA Jedi IDEX, thus positioning Université Côte d'Azur as a major player in the French Riviera and an internationally recognized university important at the best level for the achievement of all of its missions.

In order to achieve our ambitions, the policy that will be implemented is based on 4 fundamental pillars:
  • Strengthen the ties between research, innovation and valorization, and thereby develop the scientific potential of Université Côte d'Azur founded on excellence, transdisciplinarity and innovation,
  • Confirm the leadership role of Université Côte d'Azur in the development of the Côte d'Azur region, in close collaboration with the local, national and international community,
  • Encourage excellence in the academic pursuits of students and professionals, and provide them with the knowledge and skills they need to solve the complex problems of today's world,
  • Develop university life within the new scope of Université Côte d'Azur, by improving working conditions and stimulating campus life through culture and sports, promoting the university's heritage and encouraging all the actions that allow the different members of the university community to be committed to their work and to flourish in their job.
