The URCA has made a particular effort to structure its research politics with 31 recognised research units, among which a few are linked to vast organisations.

Organisation of the Research Department

The Research department is in charge of project creation and financial management for those which benefit from grants. It is also responsible to the financial management of PhD students and post-doctorates’ thesis supports.


With its two technology platforms, the URCA has managed to further develop its skills, hence offering added value to the available degrees.


They are two (Sciences and Technologies and Human and Social Sciences) and run by their respective director who is supported by a scientific and educational board. They have a crucial role when it comes to defining and leading the doctoral politics of the establishment, regarding the financial possibilities, the selection of applicants, the follow-up of students as well as their occupational integration. An administrative unit common to both schools guarantees that decisions and directions are implemented.
