At the interface of life sciences, learning sciences and digital sciences
The Paris University School of Interdisciplinary Research (EURIP, École Universitaire de Recherche Interdisciplinaire de Paris) Graduate School (Université Paris Cité / Learning Planet Institute) uses both basic and applied research at the interface between life sciences, learning sciences and digital sciences. It brings together the Interdisciplinary and Innovative Approaches to Research and Education (AIRE) Master’s degree and the Frontiers of Innovation in Research and Education (FIRE) Doctoral School.
These interdisciplinary courses – based on collaborative learning and pedagogical innovation, as well as on scientific research methods – enable students to acquire practical knowledge and cross-cutting skills (communication, ethics, critical thinking, creativity, entrepreneurship). These are essential in the training of excellent multi-skilled students and researchers, so that they become capable of meeting the Sustainable Development Goals defined by the United Nations in terms of health and education.
Master AIRE, Interdisciplinary and Innovative Approaches to Research and Teaching
The AIRE Master’s degree is a two-year programme of Université Paris Cité, hosted at the Learning Planet Institute. It is designed for students, future researchers and entrepreneurs who wish to acquire a scientific training to help them develop innovative and useful projects within an international community of renowned researchers.
This Master’s programme is based on an innovative curriculum combining learning-by-doing and interdisciplinary teaching (open sciences, citizen sciences, scientific communication, etc.).
Each year, more than 100 students from all walks of life follow one of the three courses offered:
- in life sciences: Master AIRE – Life Sciences AIV
- in learning sciences: Master AIRE – Learning Sciences
- in digital sciences: Master AIRE – Digital Sciences
Each pathway is punctuated by collaborative projects and several internships in laboratories, start-ups and/or companies. Students are supported by renowned researchers, teachers and mentors.
The Master AIRE is also a vast network of alumni with varied profiles and careers. Discover our alumni.
FIRE Doctoral School, Frontiers of Innovation in Research and Education
The FIRE Doctoral School promotes interdisciplinary research projects (biology, physics, computer science, genetics, cognitive sciences, medicine, humanities and social sciences, etc.) with the aim of understanding living systems and/or exploring new ways of teaching, learning, and doing research.
Fostering a sense of cooperation and excellence, and encouraging the active participation of doctoral students, this programme allows students to develop their potential as young researchers, and enables laboratories to host unconventional theses.
