Sorbonne University

This re-establishment of the historic Sorbonne University is a comprehensive group of establishments—all top in their fields—offering students an expanded choice of major-minor courses and degrees designed for emerging professions.

As part of the Sorbonne University group, UPMC research spans not only the sciences and medicine, but also technology, economics, humanities and the arts. Its research at the intersection of numerous domains and transversal themes is supported by cluster hiring. Sorbonne University was also selected as an “Excellence Initiative” by the French government, and includes four national research organizations as members: the CNRS (scientific), Inserm (health and medical) and the IRD (research and development) and Inria (computing and automation) as full members.
