The UPJV was created in 1969 as part of an unprecedented reform of French higher education (law of 12 November 1968). In the UPJV’s half century of existence, it has become a major player in the cultural, social and economic development of its territory. It has developed strong links with the local industrial base, which it stimulates through its innovative research activities, but also through the training of highly qualified executives.
A regional university open to the world
The level of excellence of its collaborative and creative research, and its delocalised diplomas, allow it to shine beyond the Hauts-de-France region, in France and internationally. Attached to the values of humanism and the sharing of knowledge, the UPJV is a regional university open to the world, committed for more than 50 years to the service of people and society!
