PariSanté Campus: launch of the preliminary forum


PSL is one of the five public bodies behind PariSanté Campus, a cluster for research, innovation, training, and entrepreneurship in the field of digital health. With just a few weeks to go before it is opened to the public, the Commission Nationale du Débat Public (CNDP) is launching a preliminary forum to inform the public and gather its opinion on the suitability and main characteristics of this major project.

In December 2020, the French President announced the launch of PariSanté Campus, which aims to "make France a leader in digital health". It relies on five major public operators: Université PSL, Inserm, Inria, the Health Data Hub and the Agence du Numérique en Santé. The campus will host researchers, teachers, students, entrepreneurs, and the general public. Université PSL will be represented by three institutes that combine training, innovation and research:

  • The Institut PR[AI]RIE (Paris Artificial Intelligence Research Institute), winner of the 3IA call for proposals, which also includes research chairs and training programs (Dauphine - PSL, ENS - PSL, Institut Curie, Mines Paris - PSL)
  • Q-Bio, a cutting-edge research and training environment in quantitative biology, supported by the ENS - PSL
  • Physics for Medecine, an institute dedicated to cutting-edge research in medical imaging, supported by ESPCI Paris - PSL
  • A broadly interdisciplinary cluster in  the Humanities and social sciences centered on health, supported by Dauphine - PSL and ENS - PSL.

Start-ups will also join the site, some of them from PSL laboratories - a call for expressions of interest is underway (see below).

A few weeks before the campus is inaugurated, the Commission Nationale du Débat Public (CNDP) has requested that a preliminary forum be held from September 21 to November 13, 2021. This procedure will provide an opportunity to discuss the originality of the program, its scientific and educational features, the challenges it meets, the expected social and economic benefits, as well as its territorial integration and environmental impact. Alternative solutions will also be discussed through various methods of information and public participation.
Throughout the debate process, each citizen can obtain information and interact with the project leaders by submitting an opinion, asking a question, reading the debate records, participating in the meetings (see calendar below), or by contacting the e-mail address:
