Europe has been badly hit by the world economic slowdown. The impact on major institutions, such as education, has been profound. As a result, French universities are under the constraints of drastic budget cuts. Sadly, the University of Angers has not escaped these cuts in funding.
The world economic slowdown is badly hitting Europe. French universities are under the constraints of drastic budget cuts. The University of Angers does not escape this turmoil. Despite the successful recruitment of international high potential students and the strong commitment of the International Faculty and the project Team, the board of directors of ISTIA decided, July 16, 2012, to cancel the opening of the International Master « Foresight and Innovation » scheduled for October 15, 2012.
Therefore, as the independent coordinator of this Programme, with the support of the Faculty, I am looking for another educational institution that would host this Master programme, thus replacing the university of Angers. Right now we have several tracks to follow in Tunisia, Turkey, Finland…
Considering the time needed to get a national agreement to deliver a diploma for a new programme, I have little hope to be able to offer you an alternative for this academic year 2012-2013. However, in a time of high disturbance, almost everything is possible.
Please, stay tuned! News related to this great program will be posted on our blog: http://master-foresight-
Thank you again for your interest in this Masters and sincere apologize for this unthinkable decision.
