Promoting the development of high-level research

L'IUF aims to promote the development of top-level research in universities and to strengthen interdisciplinarity by encouraging institutions and teacher-researchers to achieve excellence in research, with positive consequences for teaching, the training of young researchers and, more generally, the dissemination of knowledge. It also contributes to the feminization of the research sector and to a balanced distribution of university research in France, notably by promoting a policy of scientific networking throughout the country.

Lecturers appointed to the Institut Universitaire de France are placed in a delegated position. They continue to work in their home institution, and are relieved of two-thirds of their teaching duties.
