About UsOur Mission

Our Mission

Normandy University’s mission is to coordinate a collective response to far-reaching challenges that each institution is unable to meet alone, and to be in a better position to meet the territory’s needs in terms of access to higher education, training, research and innovation. The idea here is to combine each member’s strengths in order to make all the institutions in Normandy more attractive.

Normandy University’s common thread is the desire to decompartmentalise in order to reach its goals: decompartmentalising the missions with the desire to develop a university group based on a training – research – value creation – transfer continuum; decompartmentalisation of the parties involved by having the institutions of Normandy University, research bodies, university hospitals, partners and future associate partners, the socioeconomic world and local authorities work together on projects; decompartmentalising the disciplines to encourage interdisciplinarity which will favour the innovation (especially disruptive innovation) needed to meet social challenges. This notion of decompartmentalisation should also be understood in terms of campus development, to ensure that there is a diversity of publics and build real innovative territories.

Normandy University therefore intends to make a name for itself as one of the driving forces of Normandy’s cultural and economic development, and fully embrace the challenges of its time by taking initiatives, experimenting and innovating.
