UCAS - University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences
PSL and the University of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS) signed an agreement in spring 2018 to develop collaborations in the field of research, innovation and student mobility.
Based on this agreement, the themes of collaboration focus on physics, biology, materials science, mathematics, data science, space science, aeronautics, archaeology and any other area of mutual interest.
The agreement builds on the already strong relationship between UCAS and the École Normale Supérieure - PSL, the École Pratique des Hautes Etudes - PSL, and Mines ParisTech - PSL. Exchanges between professors and researchers and the organization of conferences will promote the development of new training and research projects.
