Chemists involved in the most advanced and interdisciplinary R&D projects are indeed expected to play a central role in the exploration of future technologies. The projects are based on the rational design of active molecules and functional nano materials. They are required to act along the whole development process of the novel technologies, starting with the atomic scale control of the devices and ending with their processing and manufacturing.


The Graduate School of Chemistry of Université Paris Cité is built upon on the International Chemistry Master Programme “Frontiers in Chemistry”, on two doctoral schools – Physical Chemistry and Analytical Chemistry of Paris-Centre (ED 388), and Medicine, Toxicology, Chemistry, Imaging (ED563) – and on the Féd-Cup Research Federation (Fédération de Recherche de chimie, Université Paris Cité).

This Graduate School offers an innovative training programme centred on chemical sciences while constantly interacting with other major research areas such as physics, life and material sciences. The programme is based on an unique teaching approach, along with high-level theoretical lectures, forefront technical training and innovative educational formats. The main ambition of the Graduate School of Chemistry is to train future researchers and managers enabling them to tackle socio-economic challenges in the sectors of health, energy and environment.

The Graduate School aims at developing:

  • An interdisciplinary curriculum in chemistry and at the frontier of chemical sciences;
  • Students’ aptitude for innovation and creativity;
  • Curriculum internationalisation;
  • Entrepreneurship and valorisation capabilities.

The Graduate School of Chemistry is grounded in a deep interdisciplinary context at the interface between chemistry and physical sciences, medicine, energy, nanosciences, life sciences as well as environmental sciences. In addition to the classical educational skills, the graduate school’s programmes are designed to develop future students skills, thirst for innovation and creativity, strengthen their independence and capacity to conduct their research in both a collaborative and international environment.

The Graduate School of Chemistry is associated with the research federation of Université Paris Cité, which counts for a total of ca. 300 chemists coming from 6 mixed the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) research units.

The main areas of expertise encompass:

  • Electrochemical Sciences;
  • Supramolecular chemistry;
  • Organic chemistry;
  • Inorganic chemistry;
  • Catalysis for Environment and Energy applications;
  • Biochemistry;
  • Chemistry of materials and nanomaterials;
  • Functionalisation and surface reactivity;
  • Analytical chemistry;
  • Physical chemistry and Spectroscopies;
  • Multiscale modelling and theoretical chemistry.


To achieve its objectives, the Graduate School of Chemistry has set a steering committee. Its role aims at defining the main orientations. An additional executive committee implements and manages ensuing actions.
