      • Expertise:

        A public institution founded in 1971, UBO is a medium-sized university (around 20,000 students) offering a wide range of programs in all fields.


        What we do

        Brest is one of the world's marine science capitals and is home to 60% of French marine researchers, as well as several major organizations such as IFREMER and IPEV. The city is also famous for its sailing activities.
        The agrifood, health, and telecommunications sectors are a driving force in Brittany’s economic development.

        Our structure

        French universities function via a system of collegiate administration. Each institution is led by a team of lecturer-researchers and overseen by a president, which brings together representatives from all affiliated faculties and institutes, as well as student-elected delegates. Universities are chiefly financed by the French government.

        Our research

        French research is essentially academic in nature, encompassing the work of university laboratories and their partner organizations. UBO is home to 37 laboratories, some of which are supported by prestigious French research bodies, such as CNRS, INSERM, and IRD.

        There are four principal areas of research at UBO :

        • Marine Sciences
        • Health, Agrifood and Materials
        • Maths-ICT
        • Humanities and Social Sciences

        More than 630 researchers
