In 2007, the French government launched a master plan for the modernisation of its universities.
To implement this project, the Conférence des presidents d’Université and the Caisse des Dépôts (Deposits and Consignments Fund) launched a set of studies on several aspects of this modernisation: real estate, sustainable development, foundations, digital technologies, etc.

- Co-financing of local strategic studies to set the foundations of the project (governance, funding, planning), and follow-up to identify and exchange good practices. Meanwhile, publication of methodology guides and examples of good practices identified in international benchmarks.
