Through the production of new knowledge, the University is essential to innovation ecosystems. Academic excellence, a university tradition, can no longer be reduced to training specialized doctors in a specific field, leaving aside entrepreneurship, major societal challenges, or the democratization of scientific approaches and data among the public (citizen sciences). An inclusive and innovative society expects all citizens to have access to this plurality of skills and commitments. New scientific issues call for transdisciplinary methods and knowledge.

EURIP Graduate School for Interdisciplinary Research in Paris is a response to this observation


Supported by the University of Paris (merger of the Universities Paris Descartes and Paris Diderot), its mission is to train students and future researchers able to solve complex problems, to question, explore, and establish links between different fields of research and development.

EURIP is dedicated to the development of interfaces, still little explored, between life sciences, digital and learning sciences. It trains students in the methodologies of scientific research, action-research methods of design, citizen and collaborative sciences, entrepreneurship, science/society interactions, while allowing them to acquire practical knowledge and transversal skills (communications, ethics, critical thinking, creativity, valorization) that are essential in today’s world. EURIP was awarded a 10-year public funding (PIA3 investment program) to implement its mission and activities.


The School relies on the AIRE Master’s (Interdisciplinary and Innovative Approaches to Research and Education, University of Paris) and the FDV Doctoral School (Frontiers of Living, University of Paris), already known for delivering excellent academic training with an unparalleled positioning on interdisciplinarity, collaborative work, student empowerment and educational innovation.

This PIA3 program is supported by the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI), which includes the use of its 7000m2 campus located on rue Charles V, in the 4th arrondissement of Paris.

The CRI ecosystem brings together a large number of national and international laboratories, public and private partners and has fruitful relationships with prestigious institutions and several Labex. Its supportive and caring environment, the wealth of expertise that meet there, make it a unique and world-renowned area of ​​freedom and creativity.

This ecosystem will promote the project’s deployment by creating bridges and interactions between the different programs, the teachers, and the students from the training courses of our partners. The objective is to facilitate the emergence of creative, interdisciplinary and original projects that will contribute to meeting the major challenges of our time and will have a positive impact on society.
