ERC 10 Years

As the European Research Council turns 10 year old, Université Sorbonne Paris Cité celebrates research excellence in Europe.

Sciences Po, along with the Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur et de la Recherche, hosts a national event on Friday, March 17, 2017 to break barriers in humanities and social sciences. The day will begin with an open conference in which ERC laureates and world-class experts will tackle current issues in humanities and social science: what is groundbreaking research in these fields ? how can we translate these notions into research proposals ? We will also lay out recent advances in how to attract and retain ERC laureates in France, and to ensure international stature for humanities and social science works.

Training in research and through research

Sciences Po’s doctoral candidates have a strong connection with international research.  

For example, the Doctoral School and Sciences Po’s Centre for the Americas recently created an American doctoral scholarship program.  Each year, ten of our PhD candidates are hosted by social science research centres at major North American universities.

PhD candidates can also complete a joint doctorate with Columbia University (New York), Northwestern University (Chicago) or the Max Planck Institute (Cologne).
