Université / Notre stratégie

The Strategic Plan

Sorbonne University’s strategic 5-year plan (2019-2023) defines the major strategic orientations of the University focused on four main priorities of development: 

The Strategic Plan

Acting in a global world

With its scientific strengths and reputation, Sorbonne University has set itself the primary goal of developing its impact and attractiveness at the European and international level. In this respect, it has developed a limited number of long-lasting and comprehensive strategic partnerships, including research and training, with leading international universities. It is also increasing its participation in EU programmes and initiatives, and fostering more student, faculty, and staff mobility. 

Participating fully in open science, digital and data revolutions

The university is involved in the digital revolution that is giving new importance to data and its use. Thus, Sorbonne University equips itself with cutting-edge infrastructures, trains, raises awareness and develops research around digital and artificial intelligence. It is also committed to reasoned use, demands greater transparency and ethics, and promotes open science. 

Understanding, learning and entrepreneurship in a changing world

As a key player in the realm of public debate, Sorbonne University is at the forefront of knowledge and its dissemination to all its students. As a provider of expertise and flexible enough to respond to society's expectations and questions, it adapts its teaching methods, supports and encourages entrepreneurship and stimulates innovation. It is thus able to support and enlighten society in the challenges it faces: globalisation, mobility, digital revolution, demographic and health changes, environmental transition, etc.

Establishing the new university and asserting its identity

The values of Sorbonne University are based on its long history of higher education, research and innovation in service to its community and to the society at large. Sorbonne University’s identity is intimately attached to this history. It is on this foundation that Sorbonne University has continued to build its standing as a world-class, research-intensive public university.
