Collaborative, innovative research

The University of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines is known for its research in fields such as space science, climate and the environment, heritage, health, epidemiology, disability, sociology, materials, complex systems and public policy.

By building on strong partnerships with research organizations (CNRS, INSERM, CEA, INRA, INRIA, etc.) and breaking down barriers between disciplines, UVSQ fosters the emergence of new research themes which aim to address the major scientific, technological, economic and societal challenges of today.

UVSQ's research policy is structured around eight focus areas backed by our recognized centers of scientific excellence. Our distinctive interdisciplinary research builds on collaboration from the local to international levels, including at European level with the Horizon 2020 program.
