2006-2016: PSE celebrates its 10-year Anniversary!

The goal of the Paris School of Economics, "Fondation de Coopération Scientifique” (Scientific Research Foundation) founded in December 2006, is clear and simple: to build a research community of top international standing that produces and transmits economic knowledge, train students from around the world, and disseminates understandings of economics to a broad public.

PNG - 7.7 kb

This initiative, which brings together for the first time the grandes ecoles, (Ecole des Ponts ParisTech, EHESS, ENS), a university (Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne), and major research institutions (CNRS, INRA), is the result of a long history of a progressive consolidation of several teams. Today, this community of teacher-researchers produces research and teaching that are jointly articulated, works closely with the broader public, and relies on novel human, financial and built environment resources. Yet, a number of challenges must still be met if PSE is to consolidate its gains, and continue to innovate and develop.
On the occasion of its tenth anniversary, the PSE - Paris School of Economics is taking stock of its main achievements and giving the floor to its Founders and Alumni, and invites you to join the birthday celebrations.
