  • The Centre d’économie de la Sorbonne, which is a mixed research unit of the CNRS and Université Paris-1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.
  • The Laboratoire d’économie appliquée, a research unit of the INRA (now joined with Paris-Jourdan)
  • The Centre Maurice Halbwachs, which is a mixed research unit of the CNRS, the EHESS, and the ENS.

Many Research Units, One Foundation
A number of general research centres have been merged into the Paris School of Economics while still retaining some of their own specific research and academic activities. PSE has also developed close relationships with other research entities.

Paris-Jourdan Sciences Economiques

Paris-Jourdan Sciences Economiques (PjSE) is a general research centre in Economics which brings together the majority of PSE researchers. Its members conduct research in quantitative economics (theoretical and applied) in all fields of contemporary Economics. They are also involved in teaching at the Master and PhD levels, and in the application of research results jointly with firms and public administrations, both national and international.
PjSE is a joint research unit governed by a number of research and teaching institutions: the CNRS, the EHESS, the ENPC, the ENS, the INRA and the Paris 1 University. This research centre consists of 83 research and teaching staff, 16 associated staff, 150 PhD students, and 8 engineers and technicians.

Centre d’Economie de la Sorbonne

The Centre d’Economie de la Sorbonne (CES) is a general research centre of the CNRS and the University of Paris 1, founding partners of the Paris School of Economics. The CES consists of around 150 research and teaching staff in Economics, Mathematics and Sociology working on a wide variety of research questions. The CES also runs a number of different national and international PhD programmes and maintains a substantial research library. As such, the CES and the foundation share a certain number of academic, pedagogic and material resources, notably in the context of the ETE graduate programme.
