Overview

Pierre and Marie Curie University (UPMC), a leading French university of science and medicine, is the principal heir of the faculty of sciences and one of the heirs of the faculty of medicine in Paris. UPMC`s faculties chemistry; engineering; mathematics (including the Institute of Statistics); medicine; physics; life and Earth science, the environment and biodiversity offer bachelor`s, master`s and doctoral programs. UPMC also includes the Paris Astrophysics Institute, the Henri Poincare Institute, and three marine stations on the coasts of France. As France`s largest scientific and medical complex, UPMC researchers study the most important issues of sustainable development: health, climate change, water, biodiversity, energy, and communications. It has earned recognition not just for its contribution to fundamental science but also for its extremely targeted research, as demonstrated by the many awards regularly won by UPMC researchers.

Mission Statement

UPMC`s missions are to provide higher education in all the domains of science and medicine and to advance scientific and technological research. Our educational policies ensure the orientation and professional integration of our students nationally and internationally, and at the bachelor`s, master`s and doctorate levels. Convinced that only research-supported teaching that is open to exploration and discussion will lead to the jobs of tomorrow, UPMC has completely remodeled its internship program for all levels of students. UPMC offers varied, appropriate and innovative courses to the different student populations who are there both for an education and integration into professional life. The primary objective of our research mission is to contribute to the growth of knowledge. Organized in four thematic areas, our research fosters exchanges between laboratories, incubators and new thematic projects. The dissemination of scientific and technical culture and information is part of our mission as well as economic development: UPMC actively promotes corporate research and education partnerships (industry-sponsored research, chairs affiliated to a sponsoring company) and technology transfer from invention disclosure to proof of concept, plus patent and software licensing, incubation and the creation of new companies.
