UPMC Projects for the Future

Higher education and research fields have become competitive on a global scale. The Investment for the Future program, and its € 22 billion in funding, aims to promote scientific excellence, innovation and the strengthening of economic partnerships. A series of tenders were launched in 2010, to which UPMC responded as part of Sorbonne University, (our alliance with the Panthéon-Assas and Paris-Sorbonne Universities, the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle, INSEAD, the Compiegne University of Technology, the CNRS, INSERM and the IRD).
