  • Vincent Libis, Inserm researcher, winner in 2023 for his "MeDiSyn" (Scalable Microbial Metabolite Discovery Through Synthetic Biology) project, will soon be joining le the Computational and Quantitative Biology laboratory (LCQB)
  • Richard Dorrell, CNRS researcher, winner in 2021 for his project "ChloroMosaic" (Environmental functions of the mosaic proteome of the secondary red chloroplast) will also be joining the LCQB.
  •  The "PECUNIA" project (Private interests in public functions: Framing a new paradigm of power in the cities of the Roman Empire, from the end of the Republic to Diocletian) by Anne-Valerie Pont-Boulay, associate professor at UMR Orient et Méditerranée, submitted under the ERC Consolidator Grant 2022, was funded in summer 2023.


The ERC, created by the European Union in 2007, is Europe's leading research funding agency. The ERC offers four grant programs: Starting Grants, Consolidator Grants, Advanced Grants and Synergy Grants.

The ERC Starting Grant provides funding for projects carried out by researchers with 2 to 7 years' experience since their thesis.

This support enables prize-winners to develop excellent, ground-breaking research at the frontiers of knowledge, with a team of their choice set up for the project. The only selection criterion is scientific excellence.

The Faculty of Medicine teaches the 3 cycles of medical studies: from PASS (integrated into the faculty) to the 3rd cycle including DES, DESC, DU and DIU. The lessons are given mainly on two sites: Pitié-Salpêtrière and Saint-Antoine. The faculty also provides paramedical education: speech therapy, psychomotricity and orthoptics. The Saint-Antoine site includes a midwifery school.

Welcome to Sorbonne University's Faculty of Science & Engineering

A unique combination of courses and expertise

Our international study programmes are organised according to the major disciplinary areas of the faculty. They represent the graduate study programmes that are not strictly conducted in French or that could be suitable (in part) for non French-speaking students. They also reflect part of the diversity of the disciplines involved and the bi- and inter-disciplinary aspects of many of the courses we offer.


Research & Innovation

We rely on disciplinary skills and on interdisciplinary approaches to renew concepts, methods and research subjects and to focus on some of the crucial issues faced by our societies: transformations affecting the very construction of knowledge (data, AI), the treatment of complex objects (the environment, marine and ocean sciences, cultural heritage) or our contributions to addressing societal challenges (climate change, healthcare).

Our campuses offer different and unique experiences to our students, visitors and staff. Resources and support services are also available to ensure an equal chance at success to all.

Campus Life

In addition to the cultural activities and events organised throughout the year by our clubs and societies, the Parismus society organises numerous events, evenings and cultural visits that will help you discover France and its parisian life.
