The Foundation for the Université de Lyon

The mission of the Foundation for the Université de Lyon is to contribute to the outreach of the Université de Lyon and its territory, internationally and on the Lyon Saint-Étienne site, in conjunction with the socio-economic world. The socio-economic development of the territory is indivisible from the one of its higher education, research and innovation pole. The Foundation for the Université de Lyon carries out actions, shelters foundations and raises funds to reach this shared ambition.
The Université de Lyon is a word-class academic site of excellence. Awarded the IDEX label in 2017, it is located at the heart of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, in Lyon and Saint-Étienne. Structured around 12 member institutions and several associated institutions, the Université de Lyon has three main objectives: to be a major, attractive and responsible university, with a reputation for excellence and innovation, and one which is enriched by strong international outreach; to provide outstanding training and research opportunities, in line with current social expectations and changes; to develop and promote the dynamics of the Lyon Saint-Étienne site, in conjunction with all regional local authorities.
