To meet the challenges of the 21st century, the research teams at Sorbonne University will be as invested in the heart of their subject matter as they are in interdisciplinary approaches.

In addition, Sorbonne University aims to share both our fundamental heritage and the new forms of knowledge it develops with the rest of society. Rooted in the heart of Paris, Sorbonne University will develop new forms of cooperation with its ecosystem, in Paris, in France, in Europe, and around the world.
