Research strategy consulting

Research strategy consulting


The faculty's research strategy council is a purely consultative unofficial body with no regulatory status, unlike the University's Scientific Council which is an official and decision-making body.
Chaired by the vice-dean for research, the council meets regularly by the Research and Development Department to be consulted on strategic research directions and the distribution of research credits. It is made up of 30 members.

The main missions of the Research Strategy Council can be summarized as follows:

  • Collect from the competent authorities (University, Hospital and EPST) and evaluate the elements necessary to establish a strategic plan for Research.
  • Appreciate the relevance of the Research forces on the site.
  • Establish a list of the site’s infrastructure needs.
  • Lead the establishment of the Quadrennial Plan.
  • Issue an opinion on any proposal to establish a Research structure on the site.
  • Study the implications for Research of the creation of university hospital positions.
  • Promote the means necessary for the development of Clinical Research.
  • Ensure the dissemination of scientific information.
  • Make proposals for valorization or technology transfer actions specific to the site and its needs.

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).

Study at | The Faculty of Science & Engineering

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.
