Role and missions

The External Relations and Communication Department (ERCD) is a general purpose structure whose main mission is to promote the institutional image such as it is defined by the Authorities. It is at the service of the latter and the various university structures when they wish to communicate within the Institution or externally.

Under the direct responsibility of the Rector, the Department is placed under the supervision of a Director (Level 1) who coordinates the activities of the four departments which form it:

1. The Press and Communication Department, responsible for the press as well as internal and external communication.
2.    The Research Popularisation Department, responsible for disseminating research results to a general and informed public.
3.    The Culture Promotion and Diffusion Department, responsible for disseminating and providing information about the cultural activities within the Institution or those which are linked with it.
4.    The Public Relations Department, responsible for relationships with external bodies and actors and event organisation.
