The IDEX/I-Site label: a mark of excellence


The I-SITE label (Initiatives - Science - Innovation - Territories - Economy) of the second Investissements d’Avenir program (PIA 2) promotes the restructuring of university sites "through a dynamic of excellence in all its forms, in an increasingly competitive international context" (ANR).

The IDEX/I-SITE action, launched by the Prime Minister on July 9, 2013 and steered by the National Research Agency (ANR), is the continuation of the "Initiatives of Excellence" program or IDEX of PIA 1 and completes the drawing of the French map of future internationally renowned universities

In all, 18 universities have earned and retained a IDEX or I-SITE label since the establishment of the program. CAP 20-25 project’s earning of this label must allow Université Clermont Auvergne (UCA), the project's target university, to increase its national and international visibility, and obtain important funding for the next ten years.
