Sorbonne University and UNAM Strengthen Their Strategic Partnership

Last week, Sorbonne University hosted a visit from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in Paris, to further develop our longstanding strategic partnership.

An exciting international summer school program from UNAM and Sorbonne University will also be launched next month.

Dr Francisco Trigo, UNAM's Vice-Provost for International Affairs, visited Sorbonne University's Pierre and Marie Curie Campus last week on May 23rd, 2022. Notably, he met with Sorbonne University's Vice President for International Relations and Territorial and Socio-Economic Partnerships, Guillaume Fiquet, to discuss the partnership and its ongoing developments. Trigo also participated in meetings with academic and administrative representatives from both UNAM's Paris bureau and Sorbonne University, working on topics such as research projects, joint programs, collaborative actions in Artificial Intelligence, and the partnership's existing Chair of Excellence. 

Sorbonne University and UNAM are also set to launch a new international summer school program in June: "The instrument of tomorrow": a cardboard harp?
This collaborative program between Sorbonne University's Collegium Musicæ, the Pop'Harpe Association, and UNAM, primarily seeks to encourage research in organological, iconographic and acoustic analysis of the harp. It aims to develop pedagogical, economic and sociological studies related to the instrument in France and Mexico, as well as to foster collaboration and exchange among musicians, musicologists, acousticians and instrument makers. Participants will undertake courses in the construction of cardboard harps, learn to create interpersonal links within the research community, follow courses on the iconography of different types of harps and their uses in the interpretation of medieval and traditional Mexican music, and widen their sociological perspectives. 

This summer school program encapsulates many of the characteristics integral to Sorbonne University's partnership with UNAM: ambition, innovation, multidisciplinarity and open exchange. It also marks the expansion of our partnership into explorations of music. 

Furthermore, Dr Trigo's recent meetings with Sorbonne University representatives reinforced the formal commitment of both institutions to the continuation of collaborative actions driven by common values.

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.
