Our research policy
In a French landscape that is being restructured into major clusters, with the ambition of recreating several world-class universities in France, Université de Paris represents a leading force in research, already highly visible nationally and internationally.
If the core vocation of Université de Paris is first and foremost research at the highest level, it pays great attention to the major societal issues and to the training through research of the future actors of French society.
Nearly one out of ten scientific articles published in France comes from the laboratories of Université de Paris. As the leading French university in terms of citations per article, it awards 8% of doctorates at the national level and develops research of the highest international standard, directly connected to international issues and players, with a particular ambition on a European scale.
By focusing on new forms of collaboration with national research organisations and the AP-HP, as well as on new modes of governance and steering of research and training, Université de Paris aims to enhance its visibility and attractiveness even further.
Fundamentally multidisciplinary and with a solid experience of interdisciplinarity, Université de Paris develops high-level research in all fields of knowledge, from the exact and experimental sciences to the human and social sciences.
It is notably visible in the fields of earth sciences, medicine and, more broadly, biology and health, and brings together one of the largest groups of laboratories associated with the CNRS and INSERM.
It is also expanding its research potential by developing numerous research programs with its USPC partners. More broadly, Université de Paris is committed to collaborating with all the major players in national and international research.
The research policy of Université de Paris is built in a concerted manner with its faculties, components and research structures, in close collaboration with national research organizations. Its main strategic directions are broken down into sectors of excellence to be supported, themes to be strengthened, new disciplinary fields to be developed and interdisciplinary interfaces.
It has a voluntarist international policy to attract the best teacher-researchers and researchers at all stages of their careers. In particular, this policy allows the establishment of new research areas on emerging themes.
It relies on a range of mechanisms to encourage ambitious projects, in partnership with regional, national, European and international players.
