The project to create the “Université de Paris”, supported by an IdEx label obtained in March 2018, aims to build a world-class research university, resulting from the merger of the Paris Diderot and Paris Descartes universities, and the integration of the IPGP. To meet the stated objectives of strengthening the excellence of its international scientific positioning and its attractiveness, IdEx “Université Paris 2019” launches the annual call for projects “Chairs of Excellence”.

Through this call, the future “University of Paris” aims to promote the hosting of researchers and teachers from outside the institutions that will compose it, and whose profiles correspond either to seniors of well-established international reputation or to juniors with very high potential. Senior candidates will receive support of up to 500 000 €, juniors up to 300 000 €, over a maximum of three years. The total budget for this IdEx action is approximately 1.8 million €.
