University Cote d'Azur was created in January 2020 as an experimental university. It has been awarded the prestigious Initiative d'Excellence (Idex) label in 2016. This distinction, awarded by an international jury, positions the university among the 10 best French research-intensive universities, provides it with additional resources to further accelerate its development, and marks the recognition of a university globally. 

Structured around innovative internal components with increased responsibilities for greater agility, the University Cote d'Azur backs all its training and innovation missions with the excellence of its research. Its strong roots in the Cote d'Azur region make it one of the driving forces behind its growth model.

University Cote d'Azur is a founding member of the European Ulysseus alliance, and home to one of France's four Interdisciplinary Institutes for Artificial Intelligence (3IA). 

Its UCAJEDI project proposes a strategy targeting the three major challenges of this century, resilience & sustainability of local authorities, economic & social transformation through Digital and well-being, through tools and programs promoting the development of research, training, and innovation.

Sustainaiblity at University Cote d'Azur 

The University Cote d'Azur is home to the Observatory for Ecological and Citizen Transition Côte d'Azur, a science-society interface for ecological and citizen transition in the Alpes Maritimes. OTECCA acts as a link between the academic and extra-academic worlds through Participatory Action Research projects in the region.

The aim of OTECCA is, on the one hand, to collect, produce and share data enabling the region to be monitored in terms of ecological transition and, on the other, to act as a "Science Workshop", incubating and supporting projects designed to increase the capacity for action of local players.
