What is a Digital Thematic University? (UNT : Université Numérique Thématique)


Since 2003, the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research (= MESR : Ministère de l'Enseignement Supérieur et de la Recherche) supports the development of Digital Thematic Universities (= UNT : Universités Numériques Thématiques).


UNT's goals are :

  • To promote the French Higher Education  in the different academic fields UNTs include.
