10 years of Université PSL

We share what is unique in each of us.

PSL celebrates its tenth anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, we invite you to take a look back at some of our highlights over the last ten years - big science projects, new courses, an increased and diversified range of services, and international visibility - by emphasizing the strengths of our schools.


“Université PSL is first and foremost the product of a great intellectual and scientific project that draws on the excellence and the unique and prestigious history of each component school. The great accomplishments achieved in the last 10 years reflect the impressive dynamism of our university, despite its young age. We wanted to shed light on a few of them. They illustrate both the remarkable investment of our academic and administrative communities, and the extraordinary potential that remains to be discovered in the next few years - everyone should embrace this future together!”

Alain Fuchs, President of Université PSL
