In 2010, by creating the RETI network, The University of Corsica gives the academic community an organization to promote exchange and pooling, with logistics to develop common projects in order to expand and enhance individual work and reflection by interacting and compounding research.

RETI’s roots are based on the convictions of some of the charter members, but today’s project is institutional, aimed at the most widespread audience possible to make insularity a less marginal issue.

RETI has 27 current members.
