Where the future of e-healthcare begins: inauguration of PariSanté Campus


One year after the announcement of its creation by the French President, PariSanté Campus was inaugurated on 14 December 2021 in the presence of the Prime Minister, Jean Castex, as well as Olivier Véran, Minister of Solidarity and Health, Frédérique Vidal, Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation, Agnès Pannier-Runacher, Minister Delegate for Industry, and representatives of PariSanté Campus.

Inauguration de PariSanté Campus le 14 décembre 2021

PariSanté Campus is an outstanding project initiated by the French President and supported by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation and the Ministry of Solidarity and Health. It will bring together stakeholders with the highest level of expertise to accelerate innovation and make France the world leader in digital health.

PariSanté Campus is both a teaching and research facility and a place for innovation and entrepreneurship. It is supported by five major organizations (PSL, Inserm, INRIA, ANS and the Health Data Hub) as well as private stakeholders, start-ups, companies, industrialists, associations and professional federations.

Ahead of the 2028 installation at Val de Grâce, an emblematic site for excellence in medicine, the founders and partners of PariSanté Campus have already moved into premises in the 15th arrondissement of Paris.

The site is home to four multidisciplinary research and training institutes (PR[AI]RIE, Q-Bio, Physics for Medicine and the Institut Santé Numérique en Société) which are developing complementary approaches alongside the first 30 start-ups that have joined the PariSanté Campus accelerator.

It will also host more than 1,000 experts, students, healthcare staff and entrepreneurs working together to develop innovative solutions for the digital healthcare of the future.

"By bringing together all the expertise and disciplines in one place, the Government has acquired a powerful tool for using health data to serve research and teaching. And therefore, to serve patients.”
Alain Fuchs, President of Université PSL



The four research institutes of PariSanté Campus

Q-Bio, supported by École Normale Supérieure - PSL, is an interdisciplinary research and training center in quantitative life sciences. Its theoretical models, based on the analysis and exploitation of large quantities of data, make it possible to decipher and predict the fundamental mechanisms of living systems. They are paving the way for biomedical applications, notably in predictive medicine, immunology and neurodegenerative processes. Q-Bio’s director Massimo Vergassola has already developed a similar initiative at the University of California.

Prairie aims to become the international reference institute for artificial intelligence. This research, training and innovation center was founded in 2019 by CNRS, Inria, Université PSL (Paris Sciences et Lettres), the Institut Pasteur and the University of Paris, as well as several companies. Thanks to its broad range of disciplines, from hard sciences to humanities, PR[AI]RIE will contribute to significant advances in AI, solve concrete problems and provide training for researchers and entrepreneurs alike. PR[AI]RIE won the 3IA call for proposals launched as part of the Investissements d'Avenir program and works closely with the most renowned university laboratories in the world.

Institut Physics for Medicine, supported by ESPCI Paris - PSL, Inserm and CNRS, relies on innovation in physics to create the future tools of medicine: imaging and therapy systems, intelligent e-health sensors, etc. These tools push the boundaries of medical knowledge and transform patient care in all fields of medicine, from cancer to cardiovascular and cerebral pathologies, even repairing heart valves without surgery and early detection of neurodegeneration. The Institute's world-renowned researchers have been working on this for more than 20 years, in conjunction with doctors, mathematicians, computer scientists and biologists.

The Institut Santé Numérique en Société (ISNS) puts the progress of digital healthcare and the society in which it evolves into perspective. Innovations are determined by social constraints and raise important questions in the humanities and social sciences such as sociology, economics, anthropology, political science, law and ethics. With this expertise, the ISNS plays a threefold role of research, teaching and as an intermediary between the different stakeholders of PariSanté Campus.
