Over time, the Ecole Centrale de Lille has built up a major network which has allowed it to consolidate its scientific and technical skills and to become more visible locally but also further afield, in France and abroad.
PRES University of Lille Nord de France :
Created in January 2009, the « Pôle de Recherche et d’Enseignement Supérieur » (PRES—Research and Higher Education Hub) of the University of Lille Nord de France was founded by the six state universities of the Nord-Pas de Calais region and two Grandes Écoles, including the Ecole Centrale de Lille. Today, it totals 30 institutes.
The University of Lille Nord de France comprises a group capable of reinforcing internationally the visibility and attractiveness of the major players in higher education and research in the Nord-Pas de Calais region. It is also a forum of dialogue and exchange for Higher Education and Research, as well as an essential go-between for the economic world and public authorities (State, authorities …)
With 130 000 students, 4 600 researchers and research professors, 3 000 doctoral students within the six themed doctoral schools, seven listed competitiveness clusters, numerous clusters of recognized excellence, the University of Lille Nord de France is a major player in education and research.
The CRGE comprises the 21 “Grandes Ecoles” of the Nord-Pas de Calais region, in the fields of engineering sciences, commerce-finance-management, journalism and political sciences, architecture-design. It is responsible for missions of information and guidance for the Grandes Écoles, and is thus the go-between for institutes and communities. Etienne Craye, the Director of the Ecole Centrale de Lille, was President of the CRGE from 2009 to 2012.
Five « Grandes Ecoles » in the Nord region (Ecole Centrale de Lille, SKEMA Business School, ENSAIT, Arts et Métiers ParisTech - Centre de Lille and the Mines de Douai) met in 2007 to form an incubation platform with three geographical branches – Lille, Roubaix, Douai. Through the 3 incubators – APUI, INNOTEX and TONIC, the institutes seek to :
- Develop students’ entrepreunerial streak
- Reinforce the link between research and innovation
- Become a major player on an national scale in the creation of innovative companies
Accordingly, since its formation GENI has suported 177 creation projects.
The Ecole Centrale de Lille is equally an active member of the Conférence des Grandes Ecoles and of the Conférence des Directeurs d’Ecoles Françaises d’Ingénieurs.
The School is also a member of the Commission des Titres d’Ingénieurs. In 2010, the CTI renewed the Ecole Centrale de Lille’s accreditation for a period of 6 years.
