Université PSL becomes the 22nd member of one of today's largest networks of European universities, present in sixteen countries.
Founded in 2016, The Guild is a network of twenty-two of the most prestigious European research-intensive universities across sixteen countries and is dedicated to enhancing the voice of academic institutions, their researchers and their students. The Guild is committed to the pursuit of excellence, the importance of truth-seeking and trust-building as the foundation of public life, and the creation of new knowledge for the benefit of society, culture, and economic growth.
Ole Petter Ottersen, Acting Secretary-General of The Guild said: ‘’ I am delighted to have PSL on board as a member of The Guild. PSL is internationally recognised for its excellence in research, education, and innovation and will be a true asset to our network. I trust that PSL will benefit from being part of The Guild by enhancing its visibility and influence in Europe, by fostering new partnerships and collaborations with other members, and by participating in the development of European policies and initiatives that support research and innovation.’’
Alain Fuchs, president of Université PSL said: ‘’ The internationalization of the university landscape calls for a concerted European approach to the major issues involved. Université PSL is very honoured to join the Guild and looks forward to contributing to this truly impactful network. Indeed, it not only shares the profile of the Guild's Members (intensive research, multidisciplinarity), it also fully embraces its values and is truly committed to carry them within and beyond Europe”
