Welcome to Sorbonne University, Welcome to the Future

Supporting Welcome to the Future means bolstering a visionary, dynamic community of students and alumni, lecturers and researchers, businesses and philanthropists. Working toward the same goal, driven by the same passion, together we will have an impact on the future of the world and stimulate the changes necessary to build a new society.

Welcome to the Future already means:
€50 million raised—44 projects funded—41 corporate donors—1,800 private donors

Sorbonne University is developing solutions to meet tomorrow’s major societal challenges, such as the smart city, the future of medicine, intercultural dialogue, environmental transition and heritage transmission. That's why we are launching a major fundraising campaign, a catalyst for all these future-oriented projects called "WELCOME TO THE FUTURE" For 5 years, from 2017 to 2022, the goal is to raise 100,000,000 euros to help us finance these priority projects.
By contributing to this fundraising, you can choose a specific type of support: increasing the interdisciplinary approach; encouraging talented students; or building a stimulating environment. And through the funding support of the Excellence Initiative, each euro collected will be matched, which means your contribution has double the impact. Take part in this great campaign and let’s build the future together.
