Sorbonne University / University of Florence

Sorbonne University and the University of Florence (Università degli Studi di Firenze) have established a collaboration allowing doctoral students working in the field of any discipline of European Humanism, enrolled in this framework, to be awarded the dual qualification of Doctor of the University of Florence and Doctor of Sorbonne University, when they have completed their doctorate, directed in partnership by teachers from both universities.

This joint qualification is part of a joint research project on Humanism, directed at the University of Florence by Donatella Coppini and at Sorbonne University by Hélène Casanova-Robin. It allows doctoral students to benefit from world-beating education thanks to the diversity of scientific methods implemented within each of these institutions. It also opens up a large international research network on humanism to doctoral students (seminars, conferences, colloquia), thanks to the various collaborations already established by partner research units within these universities.

The faculty of medicine is closed to the public and operates according to a business continuity plan (research, pedagogy, administrative) since Monday, March 16, 2020. The closure of the faculty to the public effectively results in the cancellation of all courses in face-to-face. Research activities and vital administrative activities are maintained, under the conditions specified by the university administration in the Business Continuity Plan. Beyond the end of classroom lessons, university libraries are closed. The situation is constantly changing, staff and students are invited to consult their emails, the university intranet and the FAQ to stay informed.

All users (students and staff) have access to more precise information on a dedicated page:
