HistoryEdit

There had been only one university in Clermont-Ferrand since the 19th century. In 1976, due to political disagreements following the 1969 loi Faure, the university was split in two, Clermont I University (later renamed University of Auvergne) and Clermont II University (Blaise Pascal University) 16 March 1976.[1]

Discussions about the possibility of merging the two universities were started in 2012, and the merging was officially announced on 23 September 2013 by the two university presidents.[2]

The name of the new university was publicly announced in January 2015.[3] The merging was officialized by a government decree on 13 September 2016,[4] and effective as of January 1st, 2017.
