The École normale supérieure is a member of Paris Sciences et Lettres Research University. This institution has been founded by 25 prestigious institutions established in Paris which have gathered together. All these institutions have in common to train their students through research and are all willing to create disciplinary convergences, make innovation and creativity more dynamic, attract and train the best students and make of research a real growth driver.

The member institutions

All member institutions have a strong identity, a limited number of students and a strong commitment towards research: these are the right conditions for an academic culture of excellence. They have decided to gather in order to join their forces and build research projects of international reach and high-ranking interdisciplinary trainings. PSL has a global academic training offer, from undergraduate programs to doctoral programs, in all disciplinary fields, from life and matter sciences to humanities and social sciences, from art creation to economics and management.

The “PSL Project”

The “PSL Project” is anchored by two components, each of them having distinct missions:

- The University and Institutions Community (“ComUe”) called “Université de Recherche Paris Sciences et Lettres – PSL Research University” is in charge of its own training and graduation missions, and also of the actions related to the life of an academic community, ie mostly actions for coordinating research policies, knowledge dissemination, international policies, digital policies, coordination of the member’s real-estate strategies and student life.

- The PSL Foundation for Scientific Cooperation (“FCS”), in which the Idex (meaning “excellence initiatives”) program is anchored, is in charge of managing the key actions of this program: recruitment for the chairs of excellence, development of strategic international partnerships, innovation and promotion of training and research

Paris Sciences et Lettres has the ambition to quickly become one of the most prominent universities in the world, with a strong international presence, a common signature for its publications (PSL Research University), one research policy for all its disciplinary fields and a jointed training policy.

Cultural and sports initiatives


PSL launches now cultural and sports initiatives, in which students and staff from the member institutions take part. Among these projects, the PSL Chorus and Orchestra is particularly noticeable and followed; there is also the Sports association AS PSL or the Revue PSL journal.
