  • Association Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF): the AUF’s mission is to contribute to and help organize scientific research, development, and cooperation in France.
  • European Universities Continuing Education Network (EUCEN): EUCEN is the largest European association dedicated to furthering Life Long Learning (ULLL), working in partnership with the European Commission to promote ULLL.
  • CREPUQ: CREPUQ is a private organization which brings together all universities in Quebec. UVSQ has signed an agreement with CREPUQ to facilitate exchanges.
