Programme de prématuration du Pôle universitaire d’innovation de l’Alliance Sorbonne Université
  • Sorbonne University Alliance

Five projects with high-transfer potential funded at €358,200

As part of the first session of the 2023 premature program, the University Innovation Pole (PUI) of the Sorbonne University Alliance announces the funding of five projects with transfer potential. In total, a budget of €358,200 will be allocated to these ambitious projects, most of which are health oriented.

The selection committee of the call for projects, including experts from all the institutions of the university innovation cluster and the socio-economic sector, selected five projects out of the fifteen submitted, the majority of which concerned health applications.


  • The PEPAGRO project, led by Stéphane Octave, a research engineer in the Enzymatic and Cellular Engineering laboratory (GEC) of the University of Technology of Compiègne (UTC/CNRS), on the development of protective molecules for agricultural plants against the Xylella fastidiosa bacterium, in a bio-inspired approach to control.
  • The DiaBoLyme project, led by Séverine Padiolleau, lecturer at the GEC laboratory of the UTC (UTC/CNRS) on the design of probes for the development of a multiplexed direct diagnostic test against the Lyme borreliosis, in an approach combining biotechnology and artificial intelligence.
  • The VacTauche project, led by Professor Bertrand Bellier of the Immunology, Immunopathology and Immunotherapy laboratory (Sorbonne University/INSERM) and Guillaume Dorothée, Director of Research at the Saint-Antoine Research Center (Sorbonne University/INSERM), on the development of tolerogenic vaccines for tauopathies, neurodegenerative diseases that affect distinct areas of the brain.
  • The Cell-Safe Therapy project, led by Arnaud Gautier, professor at the Biomolecules Laboratory (Sorbonne University/CNRS/ENS/PSL) and Franck Perez, CNRS research director at the Institut Curie's Cell Biology and Cancer Laboratory, on the safety of cell therapy through the integration of control modules.
  • The Cone project led by Serge Picaud, director of the Institut de la Vision (Sorbonne University/CNRS/INSERM), whose team is developing molecules to protect cone photoreceptors against degeneration in dry or wet AMD, hereditary dystrophies and retinal detachment.

This funding will enable project leaders to validate the proof of concept of their invention, to identify one or more potential applications and/or to strengthen the intellectual property assets envisioned.

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.
