    Programme Description

    The leading French scientific university and 7th European university according to the Shanghai ranking, UPMC represents significant research potential.

    Over 3,400 PhD students and around 4,500 researchers and research professors are spread across approximately 160 laboratories and 20 schools. This research potential gives it important responsibilities in terms of teaching and, in particular, doctoral teaching. In the current context of the development of the society of knowledge, driving the economy of innovation, this area of concern is important for UPMC.

    The ambition of UPMC is to contribute to the development of this society by proposing, within its doctoral programmes, scientific training of a high standard accompanied by a diversified range of additional programmes of study on offer and personalised support for the professional plans of PhD students.

    These mechanisms, when put into place, should ensure that PhD students successfully graduated, creative and innovative, a professional capable of occupying positions of responsibility in the companies of the socio-economic world

    One of the major scientific issues of this sector is the scientific challenge of facilitating a transition from the "study of climate change" approach to the "study of global change" approach.

    Taking the problematic of climate change and coupling it with the knowledge and the impacts of anthropic alterations (widespread pollution, land use and changes of use, use of resources) necessitates simultaneous consideration of varied disciplinary approaches (resilience, adaptability, responses to stress, physiology, biodiversity erosion, modifications of the functioning of mayor ecobiogeochemical cycles, invasive species, the evolution of the genome, etc.), in which field UPMC has excellent exponents, which must continue to be brought into synergy with physicochemical components and climate modellers. It is this synergetic, multi-disciplinary approach by individuals with the expertise required to allow the replacement of the scientific bases of environmental engineering with new and sustainable systems and the emergence of a new economic and labour market in France (flourishing elsewhere in the US)
