RITM – BFC - COMUE Université Bourgogne Franche-Comté


New curricula at the University to succeed – innovate – transform – mobilise in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté

The objective of the RITM-BFC project is to favour and improve student success.

It results from a call for projects launched within the framework of the third “Investment for the Future” program (PIA 3) entitled “New curricula at the University” whose objective is to ensure better success of undergraduate students through diversified training adapted to diverse audiences.

RITM-BFC is a tool designed for training directors and educational teams to help them make student success a major stake for all.

It is planned over 10 years, with two priorities:

  • build more individualised curricula for better student success throughout their undergraduate years, and better prepare them to professional integration
  • develop life-long training.

Emblematic and foresight actions will be proposed to the stakeholders of training under the form of calls for projects to meet these priorities.

RITM-BFC aims to encourage initiatives and support educational projects. The project covers the whole region and involves institutional and socio-economic partnerships.

At the core of innovative projects, UBFC supports training and research to turn Bourgogne-Franche-Comté into a visible and attractive region.
