URCA is a multi-site and multidisciplinary university

An identity focused on a regional, national and European priority: the bioeconomy

The University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne is a multidisciplinary training and research university positioned and recognised nationally and internationally in the bioeconomy field.

This academic identity at the heart of an interdisciplinary approach is based on 4 strategic excellence clusters and the specifics of its ecosystem:

  • a multidisciplinary cluster with an international dimension focused on agriscience, the environment, biotechnology and the bioeconomy (AEBB) taking into account, in a region with a strong agricultural and wine-growing economy, the sustainable production of the biomass, its transformation by green chemistry and biotechnologies, the ecological transition and climate change;
  • a healthcare cluster, championing scientific niches of excellence and rich and varied medical and paramedical training;
  • a digital and engineering sciences cluster (DES) focused on high-performance computing, industry 4.0, artificial intelligence, materials and technological change;
  • a humanities and social sciences cluster (HSS) united around transformation, transition and mutation.
