4EU+ Alliance

In 2018, Sorbonne University joined forces with Charles University in Prague (Czech Republic), Heidelberg University (Germany), and the University of Warsaw (Poland) to create 4EU, a European University. 

With the arrival of the universities of Milan (Italy) and Copenhagen (Denmark), an expanded alliance of six institutions—the 4EU+ Alliance, was established.

In 2022, the University of Geneva joined the alliance, bringing it to seven members, and in 2023, Paris Pantheon-Assas University joined, bringing the alliance to eight members.


4EU+ Alliance

Presentation and history

The creation of the 4EU+ Alliance lays the foundation for an innovative European university model, designed to promote the free movement of people, ideas and practices. It builds on existing bilateral and multilateral collaborations. Since the creation of the Alliance, strong commitments on the part of administrative, management, academic and research teams have made it possible to develop over a hundred joint actions focusing on four priorities:

4EU+ is based on a common conception of the university and its missions: trans-disciplinary teaching nourished by research, the promotion of pedagogical innovation, a mission at the service of society. Within this framework, it supports the establishment of a free movement area, and thus promotes cutting-edge collaborative research and international academic programs leading to qualifications and individualized education.

4EU+ graduates sharpen their critical thinking skills and develop capabilities and qualities that are essential in the 21st century, such as understanding data issues and technology, and learning about entrepreneurship. 4EU+ is committed to increasing the reputations of all its member universities and to promoting their strengths and specificities.

4EU+ by the numbers

  • 327,000 students 
  • 28,000 doctoral candidates
  • 26,000 academic staff
  • 27,000 administrative and technical staff 
  • 248 joint projects, including 4EU+ joint educational projects, academic mini-grants, student-minigrants, SEED4EU+ and Visiting Professorships projects

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).

Study at | The Faculty of Science & Engineering

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.
