The main challenge of the project, whose ramp-up will take place between 2023 and 2026, is to increase the local offer of post-baccalaureate training in order to offer young people the possibility of continuing their studies in their territory and to stem, as far as possible, the aforementioned exodus and sometimes without return to other university destinations. The first phase of the installation of the university branch is thus materialized by the establishment of continuing professional training for the year 2023-2024. A complete study on the needs of the territory is being written, in order to determine for the years to come the orientations and the training to be put in place. The delivery of this study is scheduled for September 2023. _VX
