UVSQ in Université Paris-Saclay

UVSQ is a founding member of Université Paris-Saclay along with 17 other prestigious French institutions such as HEC, Polytechnique, Centrale Supelec, CNRS and CEA.

To meet the challenge of global competition in education, research and innovation, these institutions have decided to pool their world-class teaching and research capabilities.

The project is original in that it combines the best of the three strands of French higher education and research: universities, research organizations and grandes écoles.

Affiliated under common governance, the institutions retain their identity and resources while coordinating their activities in a shared vision of research, teaching and innovation.
