The French Riviera (known in French as the Côte d'Azur) is a very famous Mediterranean coastline frequented in the first half of the 20th century by artists and writers, including Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Francis Bacon. Nice is the largest city and one of the most visited French cities, famous for its Promenade des Anglais. The Côte d'Azur is also home to one of the largest European high tech and science park “Sophia-Antipolis”. The University Cote d’Azur is the unique public university gathering among the major academic and research institutions in both Nice and Sophia Antipolis.

Université Côte d’Azur is a recently created cluster of higher education establishments on the French Riviera that brings together the major institutions in higher education and research on the Côte d’Azur. Université Côte d’Azur aims to develop a new, 21st-century model for French universities, based on new interactions between disciplines, a new form of coordination between research, teaching, and innovation, and strong partnerships with the private sector and local authorities. In January 2016, Université Côte d’Azur won a prestigious “IDEX” award from the French government for its UCAJEDI project, placing it among the top 10 world-class, comprehensive universities in France. 

The SUGAR course is part of the Invent@UCA program. It is a unique training program in innovation and digital transformation that is offered as a tailor-made learning path to all University Cote d’Azur students from undergraduate up to PhD in any discipline. The SUGAR course is one of man offered courses, acknowledged with credits and aims to give students the practical experience of using human-centered design tfor an extended period of time. At our location, we have the advantage to offer multiple workshops and events at Invent@UCA, to give the SUGAR students additional input during the SUGAR course. The projects are based on real challenges launched by companies or associations for whom students create innovative and sustainable solutions.
