Savanturiers - École de la recherche

This pedagogical program developped by CRI focuses on setting up education through research in children classes, for children and teachers, from primary school to high school. Our ambition is to teach all pupils and future citizens the engaged and reflexive spirit that characterized researchers. Research methods and ethics are based on rigorous productive learnings and participate to learners critical reflexion, their will to explore the unknown and to cooperate.

This program has three aims : setting up education through research projects within classrooms with scientific mentors, helping teachers build an expert and reeflexive attitude and research about education.

Frontiers of Life Sciences Bachelor Degree

A cross-disciplinary bachelor degree dedicated to life sciences

The Frontiers of Life Sciences Bachelor degree (FdV) is a general interdisciplinary programme. It gives students a solid scientific background with a focus on life sciences and their links with physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer science and social sciences. The program teaches skills and knowledge in all those fields using a transversal approach.

Active learning

FdV relies on innovative pedagogical approaches, which are both student-centric and project-based with an emphasis on research. Students are coached throughout the various projects by tutors and receive feedback from their peers. Over the three years, the projects change from advisor-driven and narrow-focused to student-driven with a broader scope. Research projects and internships help students explore different professional settings (laboratories, institutions, companies), make professional choices, and learn how to work in teams. They also allow them to practice skills and knowledge learned in the classroom and to develop new skills in line with their post-bachelor project.

Future employment opportunities

FdV is not a vocational program. The curriculum is designed for students who intend to pursue their studies in a Master or an engineering school.

AIRE Master

The AIRE Master is a 2-year program of Université de Paris that is hosted at the CRI. It has a strong focus on interdisciplinary and research-based projects, targeting future researchers and entrepreneurs in life, learning and digital sciences. Its curriculum offers cutting-edge courses, a learning-by-doing training based on several internships in labs, startups and companies. Every year, we host over 100 students who study life, learning and digital sciences with the objective of tackling the world's greatest challenges.

The program is built on open-science approaches, interdisciplinarity, collaborative projects and a challenge-based pedagogy, supported by well known researchers, teachers and mentors. Students benefit from our stimulating environment where creators, entrepreneurs and researchers converge in a think and do mindset to help the students achieve their goals. Students can engage in collaborative projects in our student clubs and our labs. All tracks offer a high level training in critical thinking, design, communication and soft skills to help students build their own research and career trajectories.

We promote diversity and gender equality. We are proud to count a large alumni network with more than 500 students and 20 nationalities. Many of our alumni have become successful researchers and entrepreneurs.

FIRE Doctoral School
FIRE Doctoral School

FIRE Doctoral School

The FIRE PhD program bridges fundamental and applied research at the interface of Life, Learning and Digital Sciences. It is part of the EURIP graduate school (École Universitaire de Recherche Interdisciplinaire de Paris).

The FIRE doctoral school is focused on the active participation of PhD students in their own education. Our environment fosters cooperation and excellence to enable students to develop their potential as young researchers. The program enables labs to host unconventional theses, with respect to their usual doctoral school, to participate in an interdisciplinary community, and to take advantage of the resources made available by the doctoral school and the CRI to their students.

The following are necessary conditions for a PhD thesis to be hosted by the FIRE doctoral school:

  • Conduct an original research investigation, in which the question and/or methodology is novel for the hosting lab
  • Ask a research question that is relevant to an interdisciplinary community
  • Apply a research methodology that is appropriate to meet the objectives of the study
  • Document and disseminate the research outcome and/or processes in an appropriate manner to the research community and the wider public

We discuss the latest in contemporary science - Muriel Mambrini, member of the Doctoral School Council

  • 40.2% international students
  • 100 PhD students
  • 20 to 25 theses are defended each year

EURIP Graduate School

EURIP Graduate School for Interdisciplinary Research in Paris focuses on bridging fundamental and applied research at the interfaces of Life, Learning, and Digital Sciences and aims at exploring and developing new ways of learning through research, teaching and doing research.

Its main objective is to train high-level polyvalent students/researchers to tackle UN's major Health and Education SDGs and act as innovators and change makers while allowing them to acquire practical knowledge and transversal skills (communications, ethics, critical thinking, creativity, entrepreneurship/entrepreneurial mindset) that are essential in today's world.

The Graduate School combines the AIRE Masters (Interdisciplinary and Innovative Approaches to Research and Education, Université de Paris) and the FIRE Doctoral School (Frontiers of Innovation in Research & Education, Université de Paris), already known for providing excellent academic training with an unparalleled positioning on interdisciplinarity, collaborative work, student empowerment and educational innovation.

EURIP student-centered pedagogy and training relies on learning and applying state-of-art-methods of scientific research, while opening up to:

  1. Action-based research approaches of design, citizen and collaborative sciences, Entrepreneurship
  2. Science-society interactions
  3. Collaborative and hands-on learning through research

University Degrees

Our programmes contribute to knowledge development at all ages and to a lifelong learning society. Several certified programmes help develop and update skills in education, training, entrepreneurship and scientific mediation. Our training programmes are for everyone: professionals, career changers/career transitions or university students. The programmes target candidates motivated by research, innovation and who want to transfer and co-develop their knowledge in a pioneering and interdisciplinary framework. To facilitate interactions, group size is small. Teachers are from academia and research, or are professionals from the public or private sectors. We focus on providing pioneering learning experiences, allowing us to adapt to different audiences and levels.

Our university degrees are only available in French.
