With more than 500 international agreements the University participates in the creation of European area of education and research and in the development of mobility. AMU is actively involved in many networks and consortia (407 Erasmus partners, 298 International cooperation agreements, 88 Degrees with international partnerships, 10 Erasmus Mundus programs, 360 Joint PhDs with 74 countries). Aix-Marseille University is the coordinator of A*Midex, which is one of the 8 French Excellence Initiatives (whose goal is to develop excellence of the French leaders in research and higher education) selected by an international jury on the basis of their potential and strategy, in the framework of the “Investments for the Future” program launched by the French government in 2012. An ambition is an empowerment tool for Aix-Marseille University to boost its excellence and implement a relevant interdisciplinary strategy to take up local and global scientific challenges.
