18 Mar Case Study | A French model to build business-university cooperation (FR)
“Dual studies” is a key issue for the development of our future organization of training program and studies. Indeed, the University of Lille is involved in an innovative project, with the perspective of the implementation of a “University Vocational Training Center” dedicated to “dual studies”. Our department of continuing education is the leader of the development of this entity in collaboration with all the faculties, main organizations and services dedicated to Life Long Learning and Partnerships with companies. This project encompasses the main patterns of a business-university collaboration and is so called “Université de l’Alternance”. During this 2 years project, “Action-Research” will be implemented with the participation of a PhD in Sciences of Education to evaluate the impact of dual studies on the labour market and on the integration of graduates in the labour market. The participatory action research will also develop methodology, templates and models to define quality standards on the practices of “alternance” at university.
