  • Centre Michel Serres

“Providing innovative solutions for the modern day challenges” that human societies, territories, business and public organisations have to meet, is the leitmotiv and the purpose of the Centre Michel Serres. The Centre is built on interdisciplinarity in the projects undertaken and in the teaching provided. It prepares students to work in multidisciplinary teams – the professional version of academic interdisciplinarity – and even lead such teams. Partnerships with higher education and / or research institutions, members of the ComUE, and sometimes external to it, are organised on a project by project basis.
