NYU – New York University

Founded in 1831, this university historically located in the heart of Manhattan is a first-rate partner of PSL. PSL and NYU researchers have had a longstanding relationship, with converging interests in several fields of basic science, the humanities and social science, and the arts.


NYU’s relationships with a number of PSL member institutions have been particularly successful, including Université de Paris-Dauphine, École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS), the Institut Curie Research Center, ESPCI Paris and École normale supérieure (ENS).

On the basis of this strong foundation, NYU and PSL signed an ambitious cooperative agreement in December 2016, creating the “NYU-PSL Global Alliance” aimed at developing strong research relationships and creating new opportunities for joint research and student mobility. Collaborations are expected to include seminars, workshops and faculty and student exchanges.

The NYU-PSL Global Alliance issued its first call for proposals in the spring of 2017, which remains open.



“The creation of the NYU-PSL Global Alliance was an important step in advancing PSL’s international policy. We are delighted to have signed this new agreement with NYU. NYU’s proven academic excellence in multiple areas of study, the interdisciplinary approach of its programs, and its standing as a world-class research university fall directly in line with the spirit and vision of PSL.” Thierry Coulhon, former President of PSL
“We are happy to have signed this agreement. It falls very much in line with NYU’s academic mission, and will provide excellent new opportunities for our faculty and students.” Katherine Fleming, Vice-President of New York University.
