UCAJEDI reference centers are innovation platforms born out of Université Côte d'Azur's desire to decompartmentalize disciplines as well as stakeholders. Sites of cross-fertilization, they bring together research, education and business partners in a collaborative logic aimed at both understanding existing solutions, new needs and prospects for development in specific strategic areas of activity.

The reference centers are in charge of:

  • deploying partnership research actions
  • strengthening the link between companies and initial and continuing training
  • fostering expertise and innovation for economic development.
Incubated in UCAJEDI, two of them have entered into a process of integration within Université Côte d'Azur as components in the form of Institutes for Innovation and Partnerships.
