The European Doctoral College Lille Nord-Pas de Calais (French: Collège doctoral de l'université Lille Nord de France) at the University of Lille Nord de France is a European research centre supporting academic and industrial research institutions in the north of France and Belgium. Associated with it are six doctoral schools in the region.

From doctoral research to innovation applications[edit]

The European Doctoral College Université Lille Nord de France[1] is a hub for doctoral researchers and contributes to the Lisbon strategy to make Europe 'the most competitive and knowledge-based economy in the world and a reference for high quality and excellence in education'.[2] The doctoral college groups together six doctoral schools supported by research laboratories in Lille-Kortrijk Eurodistrict and related universities in the Euroregion that includes Belgium and the French Nord - Pas de Calais region. It aims to strengthen academic and research cooperation among the universities in the Euroregion.

The purpose of the doctoral college is to contribute to and sustain a combination of first-class university institutes and close links between education, research and society in the Lille-Nord de France region, a European region including over a hundred thousand university students and more than ten thousand researchers. Lille-Nord de France claims[3] to be one of the few European hub regions recognised for their academic excellence and innovation.

Research domains are supported by several hundred Master/research curricula from the University of Lille Nord de France and partner institutes, as the first step towards doctoral studies within the doctoral college. The college supports both fundamental and applied research, and participates in several "competitiveness clusters" (pôles de compétitivité) located in the Nord de France region with strong links to industry applications. Incubators for start-up companies (such as Eurasanté and MITI-incubation) are located on the campus sites in the Lille area.

Most researchers at the doctoral college are partially funded through grants from the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) or from the French Agence nationale pour la Recherche (ANR). Applied research is also funded through university-industry joint programmes (CIFRE).
