Alliance Program: 19 new grantees from Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University

Six teachers and researchers and 13 doctoral students from Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University have been selected for the academic year 2024-2025, following the Alliance Program's calls for applications launched at the end of 2023 within its four partner institutions.

Since its launch over 20 years ago, the Alliance Program has brought together three French institutions (Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University, École Polytechnique, Sciences Po) and one American university (Columbia University).

This French-American network has developed unique initiatives that have enabled the mobility of several hundreds of doctoral students and teachers and researchers to France and the United States, the funding of joint research projects in various disciplines, and the organisation of numerous scientific events on both sides of the Atlantic. Ten international degrees have also been created as part of this innovative programme.

Each year, several calls for applications are issued to faculty members, researchers and doctoral students from the four member institutions of the Alliance Program. Following the latest calls, 19 successful candidates from Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University have been selected to participate in one of the four main initiatives of the programme during the next academic year.
