CUMIN Program

The CUMIN (Campus of University with Mobility based on Innovation and carbon Neutrality) program aims to develop a demonstrator campus, based on electro-mobility, in order to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions at the campus Cité Scientifique of the University of Lille.

The ultimate goal of CUMIN is to use the eco-campus as a living lab to develop flexible methods and tools to enable valuable transition to e-mobility: replacement of pollutant thermal cars by alternative mobility solutions including various types of e-vehicles (from e-bike to e-trains).

CUMIN is an interdisciplinary program, which gathers research teams on electrical engineering from L2EP, urban planning from the TVES, on mechanical engineering from LaMcube, on socio-economics from CLERSE, on atmospheric optics from LOA, and on scientific communication GERiiCO, to work on different projects related to electro-mobility.

Overview of CUMIN

Greenhouse gases emissions of the campus Cité Scientifique

The carbon report of the University of Lille shows that 56% of GHG emissions are due to mobility. From this, 97% is due to daily home-university trips.

Extension of CUMIN:

The University of Québec à Trois-Rivières (Canada) has decided to adopt the model of CUMIN for its own campus. A collaboration between both universities has been established in 2018, to create the International Associate Laboratory (IAL): eCAMPUS (electro-mobility for CAMPus of Universities based on Sustainability).
The objective of eCAMPUS is to develop methodologies for the research and implementation of electro-mobility in university campuses, towards a future development of eco-cities. If the campus "cité sceintifique" will be the core of the developments, the results will be extended to alll the campuses of the University of Lille and also to campuses of our international partners.
