Stanford-France center

In 2016, PSL entered into a partnership with the Stanford-France Center, a program established between Stanford University and France dedicated to research collaborations in all fields.

The agreement between PSL and the Stanford-France Center (SFC), signed in 2016, allows for the co-financing of projects between the two institutions as part of the call for collaborative research proposals published annually by the SFC and the French Embassy in the United States.
This call for proposals aims to foster collaborations between young researchers from France and Stanford University, working on common multidisciplinary research questions.

Numerous joint research projects between PSL and Stanford have thus been conducted, both in the humanities and social sciences and in the sciences, involving in particular the ENS - PSL and Dauphine - PSL.
Several PSL students and post-doctoral fellows have also benefited from the "Visiting Junior Scholar Fellowship" and "Visiting Student Researcher Fellowship" programs, which allow PSL students and young researchers to do research at Stanford.
