230 start-ups created from Sorbonne Université laboratories since 2010.
More than 300 million euros raised by these start-ups.


Sorbonne Université is behind Quadrivium Ventures, a company with a €60 million private equity fund that provides seed capital for young companies with innovative projects that are primarily derived from, or linked to, our laboratories.

4 partner incubators

Sorbonne Université benefits from the services of incubators located in Ile-de-France, Brittany, Occitania and Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur. It works closely with four incubators in the Paris region: Agoranov, which it hosts at its premises on boulevard Raspail, Silver Innov', dedicated to the silver economy and two incubators within the laboratories, the Institut de la Vision (Sorbonne Université/CNRS/Inserm) and the Institut du Cerveau  (IC: Sorbonne Université/AP-HP/CNRS/Inserm).

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:

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.
