The scientific identity of the University of Corsica is designated by the CNRS (National center for scientific research), and evolves around 8 fundamental, multidisciplinary projects. Strongly oriented toward regional development, each of these projects associates fundamental as well as practical research resulting in actual realizations of high added value.
